"This was a great opportunity that I was glad I took part in. There is nothing better than getting to learn new things about companies that you're interested in." - Junior, Widener University 

"The EACE Road Trips serve as a beneficial hybrid workshops that allow for networking opportunities, as well as obtaining information on possible career paths with involved companies." - Senior, Worcester State University

"An amazing experience, I finally got to see a possible career path and get a feel for the environment and hopefully future co-workers." - Sophomore, Saint Thomas Aquinas College

"I have been to three of these events since I started college, and I plan to continue attending these events all the way through to my senior year. It is a really great way to get to know a company without having the pressure of an interview. For me, it has helped me get a grasp about the things I want and the things I don't want in a company. Information like this is so valuable, especially as I get older and start to look for jobs. The EACE Road Trips Program is such a rewarding experience. I would recommend this program for college students at all stages: refining career interests, finding internships, and looking for jobs." - Sophomore, Mount Holyoke College
