Congratulations to our newly admitted Brady Scholars, Class of 2018! A very warm welcome to Katie Braun, Tony Chen, Sam Doty, Kyle Dubuque, Emma Kupor, Callie Leone, Hansen Ong, Megan Pan, Vinay Patel, Hadley Pfalzgraf, Nina Sedeno, Asha Sawhney, Samantha Vargas, Cecilia Wilson, Ann Yu and Emma Zblewski.
Brady Sophomores are making plans for their Junior Year Study Abroad. Before they separate, they will decide on the topic they would like to address in the Senior Project. They will consider how this challenge is being met in the foreign city in which they will study.
Brady Juniors continue to examine the ways that Evanston assists young adults with cognitive disabilities, the issue this class will focus upon for the Senior Project. On March 12, students visited the Center for Independent Futures in Evanston, and reflected on their meeting immediately following. Earlier this year, they visited a transition house which helps Evanston Township High School graduates learn life skills.
Seniors have completed their project work after a very successful partnership with a community group called Our House, a transitional housing project envisioned by some of the team members at Curt’s Café, a non-profit organization that provides training in food service and life skills for at risk youth in Evanston. Brady Seniors assisted in the development of the new Our House website, hosted a campus-wide movie screening of The Homestretch, and brought together students and professors from across the University for a conversation about the impact of structural issues on youth homelessness. Congratulations Brady Class of 2015!
