What are your general comments?

"Wow! You can actually smell the chocolate in the air. I also saw the landing of "Life Lion" helicopter that transports patients to the hospital. Presentation by Marc Lubbers was great. Surrounding environment is relaxing and calm, at least until tourist season starts again as the Hershey attractions are right nearby. Chocolate World is a great place to stop by if you have morning interviews. Tour of the hospital and library was given by a hospital volunteer. Students accompanied our lunch at the hospital cafeteria. " Report Response
