Biology majors Henry Becker and Corinne Tarantino were among those traveling to the Galápagos this summer to document biodiversity and conservation efforts. The educational journey was organized by SMPA’s Planet Forward.
Eight Japanese students affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011 traveled to GW as part of the Sugai Intensive English and Leadership Program, a two-week immersive experience led by Japanese-speaking faculty and alumni.
First-year GW students completed 7,200 hours of service during Welcome Day. Their activities included visiting veterans at retirement communities, painting D.C. classrooms and scooping trash off the National Mall.
Drs. Steven L. Frick, BS ’87, (above left) and John Kopriva, BS ’15, (center) both starred as GW basketball players. They also teamed up in the operating room. Frick helped mentor Kopriva during his training as an orthopedic surgeon.
