Victoria Torgersen, junior at Stern and our Marketing Co-Chair, went to Santiago, Chile for the International Studies Program, a Stern program that teaches students the economic, cultural and political histories of countries in a business context, including a trip to one of three international locations of spring break. Read about one of her adventures here:
Chile was the dream: 80 degree weather, shorts, sunglasses, and hiking. Everyone was obviously pretty stoked to be hiking in the Andes mountains, but no one knew what was to come. We started what was meant to be a 15-20 minute hike (that's what our guide told us) only to end 2 hrs later! Many groups, including mine, took an off-trail route: It was hilarious, we were falling left and right, covered in dirt and sweat, but we all survived and the view from the top made all worth it. Definitely a bonding experience.
