What are the iSchool Road Trips?
iSchool Road Trips for undergraduate students are eye-opening activities that provide an introduction to how technology intersects with a particular business industry. Students travel by coach bus to nearby cities, like New York City, Boston, Rochester, Buffalo, and Washington, D.C., and visit a range of companies to bridge their learning from the classroom to the real world.
