Students from all over the world come to study at Washington College, whether it is for one semester or four years. WC has study abroad programs at institutions all around the globe which provide excellent opportunities for its students. Luis, an Anthropology major with minors in Philosophy and English, is a four year international student originally from Venezuela.
During his time working at the GIs lab, he has not only worked on projects in the lab itself, but has also had the opportunity to pursue outside fieldwork. He worked in Easton mapping the storm-water system throughout the town. Luis was one of the few interns from the GIS lab who attended the GEOINT Symposium in November 2011. At this event, Luis had a chance to “wander around and mingle with some of the biggest names in GIS and government groups.” What an opportunity it was!
