As in previous years, many of our students have worked in public service, both in the U.S. and abroad, with organizations like Teach for America, Peace Corps, UNICEF, USAID, the U.S. military, and Human Rights Watch.  A number are certified EMTs. The class continues the trend of a large percentage having had experience living and working abroad after college, with more than half spending substantial time in 20 different countries ranging from China, India, Uganda, Germany, Thailand, Brazil, and others.
