Learning by Doing — SEEM Students Hold 5th Annual Conference

My DEE Experience
During the spring and fall terms, I took part in a Directed Experiential Education (DEE) class that planned JWU’s 5th Annual Sports, Entertainment, Event — Management (SEEM) Leadership Conference, which is run entirely by students. It’s classes like this that allow me to expand my knowledge and help me figure out what I want to do once I graduate.

10 Countries in 10 Days: A Tribute to Anthony Bourdain

Because ultimately life is about connecting with other people by seeing their world and eating their food. Writer Julieanne Smolinski may have summed him up best: “Anthony Bourdain tried to show TV viewers how people who weren’t anything like us were just like us. He viewed humanity with curiosity, compassion, humility, and humor.”
