The LSB program sponsors an educational trip to Chicago every year. The purpose of the trip is to provide students an “immersion experience” in one of the country’s financial centers. The trip will take place during reading period, on May 6th and 7th. We will leave at 6:00 am on Thursday, May 6th, and return in the evening on Friday. We will have a full schedule, visiting the Chicago Board of Trade, the Federal Reserve Bank, as well as some firms including Madison Dearborn, Copia Capital, the consulting firm Deloitte and Touche, and The Northern Trust Bank. The costs of the trip are covered by the LSB program. This trip is a great opportunity to learn about the financial world (and a consulting firm) up-close, in a way that you couldn’t do on your own.

If you would like to join, sign up by giving Adam Galambos an envelope with $20 in it, and your name on it. We will return the money to you when you board the bus at 5:45 am on May 6th. Should there be more students interested in going than spaces, preference will be given to students who did not go on the trip last year and to juniors and seniors, as they are less likely to have another chance to go. But, if you are interested in the business world, sign up, whoever you are—if you don’t get to go, we’ll return your deposit, of course. The deadline for signing up is April 12th. Email Adam Galambos with questions.
