Finally, with the trip here being a full day event, we made it. A crowded 3:30 a.m. van ride to St. Louis, a flight to Baltimore, and another van ride through the insane streets of D.C. later, and we are here! I've been conversing with some of the people I'm going to be around this week, and I have to say I'm pretty excited about how this is all going to play out. We are such an eclectic group of students, from business and accounting, to education, math and engineering, computer science and even more. I've noticed a lot of differing opinions, but I'm enjoying the dialogues that are resulting from them rather than just arguments. This trip may be a success after all.
