From Random Walks and Industry Treks to study abroad and Spring Break excursions (not to mention the diverse cultural attractions right here in Chicago), your two years at Booth are sure to have an international element that will build memories of a lifetime. Boothies recently returned from Spring Break and came back with amazing stories from their trips abroad. Read on to hear about three of these trips.
During the Tanzania Trek, 18 students hiked Kilimanjaro, went on safari, relaxed at an all-inclusive resort on the pristine beaches in Zanzibar and capped off the week at a Full Moon Party. The trek was organized by the Central Africa Business Group and was a chance for these first and second year students to explore an exciting part of the world and get to know a new group of classmates. – Sara Raffa (’16)
The Israel trip has been my favorite trip at Booth. Brilliantly organized by Israeli second-years, I gained perspective on the country and region that I will take with me after my time at Booth. – Harmesh Bhambra (’16)
Northern Lights Adventures
Over Spring Break, 14 of us ventured 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle to Tromsø, Norway, where we got to go dog-sledding, snow-shoeing, and cross-country skiing. We even jumped into the ocean at one point (water temp = 37 degrees), which was quite energizing, but I think the highlight for all of us was getting to see the Northern Lights. On the way there and back, we also visited Copenhagen, Denmark and Stockholm, Sweden (naturally, we stopped by the Swedish Academy to pay tribute to Booth’s Nobel Laureates). – John DeChellis (’16)
