Students will design a pilgrimage experience using budgeting, creative writing, and research to plan a senior trip before embarking upon their post-graduate adult lives. With seven days and $5000.00 to spend, they will design a journey in which they reflect on their life as an early college senior, before starting their life as a young adult and professional.
Driving Questions / Scenario (what are we trying to solve or improve?):
