This is, officially, the end.

So it’s Friday, August 23, and as the day comes to a close, so does our CAMPARE experience. We visited Steward for the last time earlier today, turning in our keys and getting some “UA shwag,” as Gina put it when we first met. It was kind of bittersweet when we headed back […]
