UChicagoGRAD Treks provide interactive exposure to different career paths by visiting employer sites to learn about the work of a few organizations and network with alumni and professionals in the field. The theme and location of each Trek is different, providing a slightly narrowed focus for students who have identified specific fields of interest for their professional next steps.
