Kanayo Onyekwuluje '13, from Bowling Green, Ky., divided his time during the summer between Israel and Washington, D.C., where he interned at the World Bank. He is majoring in comparative literature with a double minor in peace and conflict studies and Spanish literature.

Kanayo Onyekwuluje '13 embarked on two separate but related undertakings last summer, one at an archeological dig in Israel and the other at the World Bank in Washington, D.C. His experiences are "going to be applicable to anything I do" after graduation, says Onyekwuluje, who is planning a career in international relations or international peace.

Onyekwuluje is one of about 200 students who received support through Swarthmore for summer learning and research projects. From Chester to China, they were engaged in experiences that took them to the frontiers of knowledge outside the traditional classroom. more
