The Welcoming Semester

As I compiled the end of semester reports, I noticed a bit of a theme for the Office of Community Engagement this fall. We have been doing a lot of welcoming.

We’re Gonna Need a Montage

Wouldn’t it be great if montages were a real thing? Take Rocky II, for example. To prepare for his fight against Apollo Creed, Rocky Balboa has a long and grueling training schedule in front of him. Rather than having to actually go through the weeks and months that this training entails, in classic movie fashion, […]

Urology and Public Health in India

Urology Department Before coming to Santhiram, many villagers attempt to treat their illnesses locally through RMPs (who I have written about in my previous blog), according to a PG (post-graduate) student.
