They saw much of the island, including walking tours of Old San Juan, a trip to the rain forest, and a day with students and faculty at the Universidad del Sagrado Corazon (the University of the Sacred Heart). They shared stories of educational experiences with the students there, and learned much about each other's culture during the visit. In the photographs above, the BizComms pose with the students from Puerto Rico during some of the activities.
