The Student Investment Fund trip to San Francisco was amazing trip that provided me with opportunities and experiences I would never have been exposed to in Alaska. We spent our time visiting a variety of financial firms and had meetings with professionals from different financial sectors, such as wealth management, financial consulting and real estate investments.

My favorite aspect of the trip was the opportunity to speak with amazingly bright, smart and hardworking financial professionals. Talking to professionals about their education, work history, as well as their advice about life, careers and goals was an incredibly inspiring experience.

Shelby Carlson also traveled to San Francisco:

The trip to San Francisco was probably one of the most eye opening experiences of my college career. It can become a bit daunting just sitting in the classroom and studying out of the text book day after day. Having the chance to get out of the classroom and meet people doing the work I am studying helped me understand and appreciate what I need to do to get where I want my career to go.

I was very inspired after coming home from this trip, and am very grateful to my professor, Craig Wisen, alumnus Sam Enoka, and the people that took their time to meet with us.
