A Small Break For MIM Students

Two weeks ago the difficult spring term concluded for MIM students, many of whom decided to use their free time to take a few trips around the US. Find out who went where below:

MIM student Pang Sakolvipas went on a tour with family and friends through Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, and Yosemite National Park. Her tour guide spoke both English and Chinese on the tour, which was a great opportunity since she has been learning Chinese throughout the MIM program. Pang stated “it was an intensive trip, but I had a lot of fun,” and was able to pack many activities into one week, including a Las Vegas show and a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon. Of course, after her return flight on Monday she immediately had a team meeting for her capstone.

MIM students rarely rest, and as Pang said we “study hard, and travel harder.”
