LEADING ROLES: Whether in the entertainment industry, healthcare or law, our semester-long LA Internship Program positions students like Geovanny Sequeira ’19 to be leaders. Sequeira interned at the AIDS Healthcare Foundation precisely because it provides services to anyone, regardless of finances. To watch the video, visit here.

PROFESSOR TRIBUTE: Professor Mike Horne, who died recently, collaborated with the world’s leading physicists in exploring the mysteries of entanglement but always found time to meet with his students and introduce them to the beauty of physics. Read our tribute here.

STATE OF THE UNION: Recently, Peter Ubertaccio, Dean of the May School of Arts & Sciences, was a featured lecturer on C-SPAN's American History TV. Check it out here.
