With regret and sadness, we note the passing of Marion Deshmukh on Saturday, April 13, 2019. Dr. Deshmukh was a giant at George Mason University whose broad impact on her field, her students, and campus was foundational.
Catey Borden, a History major who graduated in May 2018, was recently named as a recipient of the prestigious Fulbright Award. The award gives recent undergraduates the opportunity to live abroad and engage in daily cultural exchange with people in their host country. This is among the most prestigious of national academic awards for undergraduate students in the U.S. We recently asked Catey some questions about her upcoming experience.
