For the 11 students who spent the summer conducting research through the Ocean Science Research Experiences for Undergraduates program based at CSU Monterey Bay, Aug. 15 was graduation day.
The students – one from CSUMB, one from Hartnell College in Salinas and the other nine from campuses around the country – presented their work to a group of their peers, CSUMB faculty and administrators, and mentors from the collaborating agencies.
While other students are returning to the classroom this fall, Wendy Holman is heading to Washington, D.C., where she will spend the semester working in the office of a member of the House of Representatives.
The CSU Monterey Bay senior is one of 26 students taking part in this year’s Congressional Internship Program through the Panetta Institute for Public Policy. All were selected based on exemplary academic achievement and interest in politics, policy and pubic service.
