Our next installment of the Random Walk Series is brought to us by Evan Coughenour, who went on the Mystery Trip. The Mystery Trip is designed such that all first-year students and their second-year trip leaders do not know their destination until they arrive at the airport on Day 1 of Random Walk.

While you can find a comprehensive list of the groups at Booth through the Web site, today I am going to talk a little about my own personal experience with the Armed Forces Group (AFG). This will of course just be one specific example about a single group, but I can assure everyone that each student group has comparable functions and engagement. Continue reading Community at Booth
