Ross Students Set Off On Globe-Trotting Adventures Before Classes Begin

Share

This week, a majority of new U-M Ross MBA students are embarking on adventures all across the world known as MTrek. Traveling with second-year MBA mentors, the trekkers will learn first-hand about the Ross culture and be able to meet new classmates in some of the world’s most picturesque and remote settings before classes begin next month.

One trek will find students swimming, biking, rappelling and kayaking through Vietnam.

During another trip, students will “camel-trek” around the sands of time in the Erg Chebbi dunes of the Sahara Desert (pictured, block M flag in tow, of course).

But it’s not all wilderness and high-stakes exploration. A trek to Panama will include sandy beaches and water-taxi island hopping, and a Slovenia trip will focus on hill frolicking reminiscent of the best scenes in “The Sound of Music.”

Here is a full-list of this year’s treks, which are all 100 percent completely student organized and operated.

Help us wish the trekkers bon voyage in the comments, and follow @MichiganRoss on Twitter and Instagram. We’ll be gathering photos from the MTrek experiences to share.
