“Nimo's undergraduate accomplishments are astounding not least in their sheer variety. She has undertaken UROP research on the usage of alternative and complementary medicine in refugee populations in the US, has been involved with Women of Tomorrow, received a prestigious Gilman Scholarship to study Arabic in Jordan and participated in an Alternative Spring Break program on Poverty Alleviation through the Bennion Center."
"Jenny has made it a priority to address some of our most pressing –and most intractable –social and environmental ills. She participated in a Greece International Internship program to assist refugees and worked on a Mekong Internship in Cambodia researching water conservation, air pollution and land management in rural villages."
"Jordan is a double major in international studies and history, with a minor French. She has studied abroad to learn Arabic in Morocco (where she also put her French to use) and worked with the Fort Douglas museum, all the while developing a commitment to championing the perspectives of the most marginalized among us."
"Noelle is an Honors College student with a demonstrated commitment to community and to public health. She has served as an outreach troop leader for the James E. Moss Elementary School Girl Scout Troop, a volunteer coordinator for the Aiding the Homeless program and has otherwise been involved with the Bennion Center."
