A diverse network of experiences

"The refugees’ experiences traveling to and living in Greece could have easily turned anyone sour, but here they were, laughing and smiling with us as we communicated through translators and hand gestures. It was an eye-opening and heart-filling experience."

Paxtyn Merten, AMD’20

"In Northwest Africa, I saw the importance of environmental mitigation and knew I wanted to work towards changing the processes that enable environmental degradation."

Amina Ly, S’18

"In my year in Costa Rica, I gained a sense of independence and learned valuable lessons about patience, communication, and problem-solving. I was pushed out of my comfort zone many times, which was invaluable for my growth as a learner as well as a human being."

Leah Epstein, SSH’19

"These students are getting robotics experience in sixth and seventh grade, and hopefully it can be a stepping stone for them."

Christopher Scianna, E’19

"In my project with Breegi Scientific, I improved my communication and project management skills and I gained confidence applying the regulatory knowledge I gained in my master’s program."

Diana Parra, MS in Regulatory Affairs
