Today's lecture followed after our transient displacement quiz. I studied the night before so I'm pretty sure I did well. Mark started the day with more advanced excel explanations and Group A went to the lab first to practice. He actually went slow this time so we can catch up. Because of that, I understood almost everything he taught us in the computer lab. After lunch, we were introduced to casinos and how they are constructed and managed. The video that shows the construction team building the CityCenter in Las Vegas was really interesting. They were pushed into constructing six top-notch buildings in less than five years. To do so, all constructions took place at the same time. All of these events took place during the depression, so building exquisite resorts weren't the best money-making thing to do. They ended up floors that's one-third the original price.
There's two more days until our flight back to California. I can't wait to go back and tell my family about my experience here at Cornell. Until then, I shall focus on making my final group report noteworthy.
