Dear All,

I wanted to make sure you knew that one of our seniors, Olivia Haddad, was chosen to present a research paper at the Human Development Conference at the University of Notre Dame this weekend. Olivia is an Environmental Studies major and she studied abroad in Cuernavaca, Mexico as a sophomore and in Panama as a junior. This is a competitive undergraduate research conference and it is wonderful to have Gettysburg represented! Here is the information about her panel:
