IRES Student Society Bio
My name is Tatiana, I love strawberries, hiking, and traveling. My role in the IRES student society is Trip Coordinator, which means that I will plan the logistics of the IRES spring and fall trips together with the other Trip Coordinator Charly Philipps. We will plan where to go, what activities to do, how to get there, where to stay, and a lot more. Our top priorities are to make the trips accessible, inclusive, and affordable for all and to give you the chance to connect in a non-academic environment with the IRES community. We are always open to suggestions or ideas so feel free to contact us if you have any questions or ideas regarding the trips so we can make the trips a unique experience for you.
