Pieces written by freshman Khin Khin Hlaing have been carried by the Myanmar Post (pictured) and a weekly magazine based in Mandalay.  She has also received interview requests from two additional non-government newspapers and a radio station in Yangon.

Another first-year student, Sumeru Chatterjee, who hails from India, was selected to be part of a youth debate broadcast by the BBC.

Juniors Pucong Han and Anthony Baratta contributed an item which was published in China Daily, the most widely-circulated English language daily newspaper published in the People's Republic of China. Read more here.

A total of 13 DePauw students traveled to Denmark for the climate change conference known as COP15. Their trip was made possible by a contribution from Pamela Lorman Peternell '68 and her husband, Ben.

The DePauw students have been blogging from Copenhagen here and here.
