ECESS Silicon Valley Trip 2015

Join ECESS in the third annual Silicon Valley trip! Last year’s trip was a huge success and we’re excited to bring the trip back again for all students!

Hello everyone. What are your plans this reading break? If you don’t know yet, you guys should definitely go to SAN FRANCISCO! We are bringing back our Annual Silicon Valley Trip to visit a variety of companies within the Bay Area. Some of these companies include Google, Facebook, Nvidia and Leap Motion. Come out to the info session for more information!

When: January 19th at 4pm, MCLD 434

This trip is a great opportunity to learn more about the amazing tech companies in California. So make sure to check it out next Monday!

Trip Details:

  • February 16th – 21st, 2015 (reading break)
  • only 40 spots available (first come first serve)
  • Total trip cost is $600 (includes flight, bus & accommodation)
    ** $600 ticket price adjustment is to account for rising exchange rates to keep our trip viable. Our team is hard at work in acquiring funding from various sources to keep ticket price as low as possible. Also compared to last year, the ticket price is still $50 lower in comparison, and we are staying one extra day! (6 day trip this year, instead of 5) **

Companies Confirmed: Google, Facebook, Nvidia, Leap Motion.
Currently contacting: Tesla Motors, Linkedin, VMWare, Airbnb, Quantcast, and many more!
