Academic & cultural Enrichment
Fellows and Ramseys meet Honors alum Fred Newman, creator of the cartoon Doug

Top faculty from departments across campus, Foundation Fellows alumni, industry leaders, and other experts lead activities for academic enrichment and networking throughout the year. Fellows are also provided with funding to attend film festivals, theatrical and aerial dance performances, and art exhibits. Some activities take place on campus, while others take place in professors’ homes, coffee shops, theatres, pottery studios, and museums.

A Conversation with Buddhist Monks Visiting from South Korea with Hyangsoon Yi, Professor of Comparative Literature, Interim Director of the Center for Asian Studies

Chris Lewitzke – I don’t know how many students across the country are able to have an intimate dinner with three Korean monks, but it can’t be that many. Hearing about their lives, what they believe, and why they believe it opened my eyes to a lifestyle I was unfamiliar with. The monks were very open about their beliefs and were willing to answer any questions we had, no matter how simple or philosophical.

Development and Delivery of Novel Therapeutics to Address Cancer with Michael Goldberg, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School

Cali Callaway – This casual discussion gave us a glimpse into the world of cancer research. Dr. Goldberg shared his perspectives on medicine, pharmaceuticals, and research and also his personal experiences in the realm of academia. His kindness and intellect made this seminar one of the most enjoyable of the semester.

Emergency Medicine: How to Suture a Skin Wound with Lucy Fu and Claire Underwood Hailey, Fellows Class of 2011

Caroline Coleman – I don’t spend many Saturday mornings suturing skin wounds on semi-frozen pigs’ feet, but when I do, it’s with the Fellowship. Events like these have helped me solidify my career goals and interests. I officially decided to be pre-med the morning after this seminar, and it wouldn’t have been possible for me to decide on medicine with such conviction without this opportunity.
