Party at the Shore
An annual event for SUMR Scholars is a trip to Margate NJ, where Skip Rosoff (Wharton Faculty) graciously hosts the group for a fun day of water, sun and boating. The SUMR Scholars were invited to a faculty member's (Skip Rosoff) beach house in Margate NJ. After a barbecue lunch at Skip's house, the gange set sail in Skip's luxury yacht - touring the bay, and hitting the waves on the beach. A fun time was had by all.
