Earlier this month, the Class of 2010 took their turn to enjoy one of the greatest facets of the program, the second-year class trip. This year, we went to the Dallas-Fort Worth area to visit premiere sporting venues like the new home of the Dallas Cowboys at Texas Stadium, understand all the workings of promoting and operating a Major League Soccer franchise at FC Dallas, listen to the career paths of highly accomplished program alumni and sport professionals in the Dallas area, and be inspired by motivational speakers like Bob Beaudine (if you haven't read the Power of Who, be sure to pick a copy as soon as possible, it may very well change the way you view your career and life).
We learned so much and networked with so many new sport business professionals that it would be unfair to try and recap everything we saw into a short blog format. Suffice it to say, the trip was terrific and we will take many memories from our time there. Here are a few photos in a blog picture essay of sorts that capture the great people we met and great times that were shared for 3 days in Dallas.
