There is no allowance or reimbursement of travel expenses getting to the hotel or returning to campus after the Trek concludes. Once in Silicon Valley, and the Trek begins, transportation to all scheduled events will be via chartered coach. Students may not drive themselves, or other students, to any of the scheduled events.

Hotel Accommodations: Hotel rooms will be provided by ITAB. Students will share a hotel room at the Trek headquarters hotel. The rooms have two beds and may be located throughout the hotel. Use of the hotel amenities are encouraged, remembering that all participants of the Trek are ambassadors of CMC and should behave accordingly.

Meals: Meals associated with formal Trek events will be provided by ITAB for all participants from Sunday evening through Friday afternoon the week of the Trek. Any meals not part of the Trek are the responsibility of each student.

Additional Costs: The Trek concludes on Friday, March 16. Students who wish to do local sight-seeing before returning to campus must budget and pay for a hotel on their own.
