On-Campus Event Opportunity

Study Buddy

Wednesday, Dec. 9: Build-A-Study-Buddy

Student Life is proud to partner with Program Board and the Residence Hall Association (RHA) to announce an exclusive event for on-campus residents: Build-A-Study-Buddy! This activity is a cornerstone of the Midnight Breakfast tradition where participants get to assemble their very own plush stuffed animal; a study-buddy to keep you company and support you through final exams.

All on-campus residents who will be living in the residence halls December 1-4, 2020 can request a Study Buddy kit, complete with all the supplies needed to participate in RHA's virtual Study Buddy party on December 9

Supplies are limited, and we are unable to accept requests to ship the study buddy kits to students living off campus; however, be sure to follow @StudentLifeAtGW on Instagram to see how you might just win one of a select few kits available!

Alexandra Garcia

Thursday, Dec. 10: Meeting the Moment

Join Elliott School Alumni Programs for a conversation with Alexandra Garcia, MIPP '14, who serves as the Chief Program Officer for World Central Kitchen. On a given day, Garcia may find herself directing efforts to promote clean cookstove use across the Caribbean and Latin America, working with local farms, chefs, and food industry workers to promote sustainable food supply chains, or organizing culinary trainings to build the self-sustaining capacity of local communities to feed themselves. During this event, Garcia will discuss her work overseeing long-term development projects that often follow the headline-grabbing emergency relief efforts of World Central Kitchen, the role of the organization at-large in a crowded development field, and her atypical path into her role. 

This event is the first in a series highlighting Elliott School alumni featured in the school's 2019-2020 State of the School report for their efforts to "Meet the Moment" in their own unique way.
