Nineteen students in Professor Dennis Canterbury's Sociology of Globalization class took a field trip to the White House, the U.S. Congress and the World Bank Oct. 21-24. Canterbury is a specialist in the areas of development and globalization.
In addition to touring the White House and the Capitol, students heard a lecture on the role of the World Bank in a global setting, and were then given a quiz. The tours of the White House and the halls of Congress were arranged by U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney's Washington office.
The students also visited the new Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the northeast corner of the Tidal Basin. In addition to Professor Canterbury, participants on the trip included alumnus Ryan Davis; Cliff Marrett, interim director of career services; and students Laura Gervascio, Milan Turner, Sarah Bojorquez, Melissa Heikoff, Anne Kanzow, Whitley Mingo, Nely Montoyo, Melissa Simeone, Garrett Campbell, Deven Zesk, Kevin Rivera, Luen Yeung, Robert Ensign III, Daniel Fitzpatrick, Nicholas Higgins, Charles Ladd, Daniel Parker, Randy Romano, and Conor Sherman.
