We host site visits (trips to a single organization) and City Treks (daylong trips to multiple organizations in a city) throughout the academic year. These programs provide undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to visit an organization, get an inside look at an industry and possible careers, and meet alumni and recruiters.
