Well, the first cadre of students have finally arrived in San Francisco.
For us first year MBAs, we just completed nearly 10 hours of final exams, finished at 5pm yesterday evening, and woke up at 4:30AM (after a few drinks at Tonic) to take the red eye to SFO. Happy to finally be here, a few of us managed to trek through the airport and eco-consciously rode the BART to our temporary residence, the Good Hotel. The Good Hotel is where we will be sponsoring the Net Impact breakfast on Friday morning featuring founders of companies in sustainable businesses in the San Francisco area.
As our 21 students begin trickling in, we will kick off the 5th Annual San Francisco Career Trek with our first official event – the student-alumni dinners that begin at approximately 7pm. We are honored to be able to meet with prestigious GW alumni representing firms like Neil Baquiran of Walmart.com, Logan Coker of Del Monte, Malenie Warrick of Slalom Consulting, and Scott Beeber of
