RISD’s Student Council (STUCO) recently returned from a 3-day trip (April 11th to 13th) to Austin where they had the opportunity to experience the state capital of Texas. The students stayed in a hotel in the heart of downtown that was designed in a blend of historic and modern French Quarter style, and included a 4th floor roof-top swimming pool.
