Rocky Gap- wonderful trip

I just wanted to thank the PROMISE staff and all those who made this experience possible. The trip was a great way to detox from all school related matters and meet others who are feeling a little demotivated from graduate work too. It is great to know I am not alone in that aspect. I really enjoyed networking and spending time with so many talented people. I will never forget the discussion about fungi in the Sahara desert during dinner. I hope that the PROMISE group will continue its mission and offer similar programs in the future. I know a lot of people felt they really benefited from this experience.

Warmest Regards
