On the first day of fall break, the first WiCS event took place as we gathered a group of 16 to visit Google in New York as a Tech Trek.
We met our very own Penn alums, who gave us a brief tour of their favorite parts of the building and sat down to have lunch while sharing their background and journey at Penn and in a big tech company like Google. As the entire group was comprised of freshman and sophomores, it was fascinating to recognize the different experiences and opportunities that our alums talked about. Since many of us are still exploring the field and trying to fully understand the pursuit of a degree in this field, the tech trek was an event that really allowed us to see the potential in the field as well as the many opportunities we would expect to have. It was also a free trip to Google so obviously that was cool.
