on May 23 | in In the Loop | by

January doldrums are chased away by the variety of classes, trips, and internships available to students during Short Term. Here are some highlights.

Part of the Caribbean Environment course taught by Renee Godard and Morgan Wilson, biology department faculty members, entailed categorizing and cleaning up trash from four shorelines on the island of St. John. Shown: Kristin Bell ’14 and Godard. In all, the group removed 5,787 items, weighing more than 125 pounds. Said Godard, “The problem of trash in our oceans, as well as that dropped by careless individuals, was very real to us all.”
