Washington MonumentThe Mount Vernon neighborhood is a popular area for many students. A short distance from the Bloomberg School of Public Health, Mount Vernon is an easy shuttle ride from campus.

The neighborhood is also home to the original Washington Monument and many other historical gems. The neighborhood association has prevented high-rises, keeping the historic architecture central to new projects. A former Mount Vernon mansion was renovated into the Ivy Hotel and a firehouse was transformed into a brewery and pub. On the arts and culture side, Mount Vernon is home to the Walters Art Museum, the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, the Center Stage Theatre and the Peabody Institute.

Recently, the New York Times featured Mount Vernon for its successful revitalization and the neighborhood’s residents’ determination to improve the prospects of their home. Get to know Mount Vernon by reading their article or the neighborhood’s conservancy webpage, Mount Vernon Place.

The Master of Arts in Public Health Biology and the Master of Applied Science degrees will be awarded for the first time at tomorrow’s convocation ceremony.

With twelve different degrees, across eleven departments and an additional four school-wide or interdisciplinary degrees, it is difficult to define the path of our students. For insight of what students from our different departments and programs thought of their time at JHSPH and their future plans, take a look at some of the students in The Class of 2018.

Our group of nine split into two groups of two and two groups of three for a variety of projects. When it came to the artistic project, Raili and I eagerly volunteered. We quickly developed a plan for the mural.

Two and a half hours later, the entrance to the community food pantry was transformed.

While Raili and I were painting, some others in the group put their muscles to use and faced the leaf and twig covered amphitheater.

Trees mean shade, but they also mean debris!
