For the 1,200 students who have just returned to Claremont McKenna College, this time of year is charged with energy and a sense of new beginnings. Students will arrive eager to begin a new semester, with a full slate of riveting classes, engaging extracurriculars, and brimming with ambitions to leave their mark on the Claremont community.

In fact, for many of our students returning from summer internships, they have already had a chance to roll up their sleeves and try their hand at making change on a global level. This is certainly the case with our seven Kravis Prize Interns who are currently wrapping up their summer work in places both near and far.

Congratulations are in order for these seven students:

Alicia Frausto, CMC ‘17 • Escuela Nueva Intern • Bogota Colombia
Bridget Moran, CMC ‘16 • Right To Play Intern • Cotonou, Benin and Toronta, Canada
Xi Feng, CMC ‘18• Pratham Intern • Mumbai, India
Jessica Azerad, CMC ‘17 • FAWE Intern • Zanzibar, Tanzania
Haley Goodman, CMC ‘17 • Helen Keller International Intern • New York, NY
Aurelio Puente, CMC ‘16 • BRAC USA Intern • New York, NY
