Sophomore Shadow Trip

Over Spring Break, I traveled to New York with the Sophomore Shadow Program. A trip organized and paid for by Beloit College. In New York, I was hosted by Eva Crawford, a Beloit alumni who works at AFS-USA, a study abroad organization. Eva works in the marketing department with eight other people.
