This week-long trek includes networking events with alumni and industry leaders, visits to companies from Seattle to Silicon Valley, and the opportunity to connect socially with peers.
Past Trek host companies include Amazon, Twitter, Google, Zillow, Nintendo, Airbnb, StubHub, IBM Watson, Lyft, Tesla, and Quora.
