Benjamin Larsson writes: "I graduate June 9, 2014 from Lund University in Lund, Sweden, with a BS in Development Studies. My major is Economic History and Political Science. Development studies at Lund University is a multi-discipline program, focusing on the four major social sciences: Political Science, Economic History, Human Geography and Sociology. My Bachelor thesis is a comparative study analyzing the relationship between non-governmental organizations and government donor agencies. My thesis is relevant to my internship, as I am interning at a consultant firm based in Vienna, Virginia which gets most of its business from USAID and other government donor agencies. My internship is a 3-month position with a possible extension of another 3 months. Right now my main tasks are helping to manage two projects in Yemen, one of which is a food-for peace project sponsored by the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance. I hope to get a permanent position at International Business and Technical Consultants Inc. as a program associate."

Zoë Schlanger writes, "I'll be starting at Newsweek in a few weeks as a 'generalist' reporter for the magazine's website, which means I'll pitch and write about a range of issues. I'm hoping that can include environmental and energy policy, corporate trade secret laws, LGBT and women's issues, and life in Spain under austerity, where youth unemployment recently passed 50%. I hope everything is going well at HVWS!"
Tucker Grose landed his dream job at the ripe old age of 23! Tucker writes: "I am working for the NHL in the department of player safety. I review game film and document incidents of visible signs of concussions. I am also the head coach of a local youth hockey team and the assistant coach for the Newtown high school hockey team. I couldn't be more happy to be doing what I am doing."
writes: "I graduated NYU in May from the Gallatin School of Individualized Study, so I designed my own major. I focused on environmental studies, political theory, and journalism. While in college I was editor-in-chief of NYU Local, NYU's student-run alternative daily news site. Right now I'm Front Page Editor at Talking Points Memo, a national politics site I worked for as an intern back in 2011. I'm also associate editor of The Nation magazine's student-oriented blog StudentNation, and I plan to do more freelance reporting in the near future.

I live in Brooklyn, which is lots of fun. I loved coming to speak at the graduation! It was a beautiful ceremony and made me miss being a student there even more."
writes: "I graduated in May from Endicott College in Beverly MA. I majored in Sport Management and minored in Environmental Science. In my senior year I interned with the Boston Bruins and while I do not have a job yet, my internship helped clarify what I am interested in. I hope to be working in ticket sales or service for a pro hockey team. I have spent the past 5 weeks backpacking around Europe with a friend from Newtown High School and we have one more week until we return to take on the real world."
