Admissions Blog

Date: May 2014

We have a strong tradition of practice at the Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Our public health students put their academic skills to use through internships, practicums and .

In admissions, we have a tradition of putting our skills to good use too. Each year, we close the office for a day and volunteer our services to a local organization.

Last Wednesday, we volunteered with Living Classrooms. Living Classrooms is a local non-profit “strengthening communities and inspiring young people to achieve their potential through hands-on education and job training, using urban, natural, and maritime resources as living classrooms."

Our job last week was to help prepare for summer Shipboard Education sea/land excursions. We cleaned, surveyed and inventoried supplies – including about thirty tents. Some of us had never put up a tent before. Others are camping veterans. All of us worked hard and had fun.
