By far my favorite memory was our Global Practicum trip to Germany and the Netherlands. It was my first trip to Europe, and having the opportunity to present on important transportation sustainability issues to executives at BMW in Munich and Rijkswaterstaat in Utrecht, while learning about the cultures, eating the delicious foods, and enjoying the nightlife are fond memories I will always have."
