Transcript Trips O^OOW. td V^OHM The road trip has often been referred to as a college tradition, if this is indeed true, then no one can accuse UH students of failing to uphold tradition. Students left town for all sorts of reasons and destinations. Whether ending up just a few hundred miles away in Dallas or San Antonio, or halfway around the world in France or Italy, students blazed new and exciting trails, but for many students, the excitement was in reaching their destination. Road trips were taken for classes, organizations, just for fun, and even to help the University of Houston get better financing from the State StUdentS Went Onl Legislature. When freshman biology major Sara Keeton and her friends went to Dallas for the football game against TCU, they played car games to keep themselves occupied. "Brian, Jenn, and Jason were playing Chinese Fire Drill," Keeton said. "Every time they would get bored, one of them would scream TIRE' and they traded seats. Fm glad I wasn't driving that car." Sophomore history major Jason Richard took road trips as a learning experience. "I'd always heard that you learn more outside of the classroom than inside the classroom. Going on road trips helped me to learn more about my peers and the college experience as a whole," Richard said. Although many students liked to hit the road for one reason or another, road trips were not for everyone. "I have the worst luck with road trips, the last time I went on one, I got 3 flat tires in one day," sophomore math major Christina Mosely said.
