Fifty campus students take trip to New York City

November 07, 2008

Some 50 Penn State Beaver students traveled to New York City last week for a whirlwind tour of the city in a little more than 24 hours. The students were accompanied by Dan Smith, instructor in business, and John Hall, lecturer in music.

The highlight of the trip was the students' visit to the New York Museum of Finance on Wall Street where they received a 90-minute guided tour and talked with employees about the stock market, commodities, bonds, the currency market and the country's current economic crisis.

Other stops on the trip included Trinity Church and Cemetery, burial place of Alexander Hamilton; the World Trade Center Memorial and new construction site; Battery Park and Central Park; Tavern on the Green; Tribeca, Soho, Chinatown and Little Italy; the Empire State Building; Broadway; Times Square and Macys.
