Thursday we got to visit the United States Securities and Trade Commission (SEC). Richard Grant, a Baylor Alum, and others presented on the work they do for the SEC and how it affects the rest of the financial world, including how accounting adapts to the cases that they deal with. That afternoon, we were able to visit another Baylor Alum, Melissa Rodgers, who works as the director for the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, who we prodded with questions about the delicacy of handling humans rights issues with the grand amount of division between certain cultures and religions. We got to enter the White House grounds and went through the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which was quite a delightful experience.
