Students will spend the morning with a CREW member learning about the industry from the inside and then will join their host and the rest of the membership of CREW Dallas as a guest at the Park City Club in Dallas for lunch.

This is a wonderful opportunity for students to network and get to know seasoned professionals in the commercial real estate industry.
