Last week I had the opportunity to visit Google’s headquarters (a.k.a., the Googleplex) in Mountain View, California. This trip was part of the award package associated with my JMU MKTG 490 students being named winners of the Americas Region in the 2011 Google Online Marketing Challenge. On behalf of Larissa Cookson, Lindsay Keller, and Molly Shea, I wish to thank AJ Pascua and his colleagues for being such wonderful hosts. Below are some of the photos from our extraordinary and memorable visit to the Googleplex.
