As my end-date is quickly approaching (August 5th), I was asked to do a review of my time here at GAC… This summer was an unbelievable experience for me. I was living away from home, halfway across the country in a city that is a conference rival to Penn State (Northwestern, Evanston), and only a short train ride away from Chicago.
