Follow Our Students This Summer with #ASCintheField

This summer, Arts and Sciences students are around the country — and the globe — interning, studying and volunteering. They are immersed in politics, out in left field studying the stats behind baseball, underwater studying coral reefs and everywhere in between. Along the way, they are creating and innovating, challenging themselves and extending their ASC experience beyond the classroom.

We will be following our students throughout the summer and sharing their adventures. Follow us, and follow them, here and on social media with #ASCintheField.
