Go, Richie, go!

If you have a young child, it's entirely likely you can hum the theme song to "Go, Diego, Go!" and shout "Click! Take a Pic!" at an appropriate moment.

If you can, get ready – Diego is coming to Charlotte and he’s one of our own. Read more about the Diego show and Richie Portela '01.

A whole new world

Seven students from the School of Nursing got a taste of Asia this spring: They spent 12 days visiting Beijing, Wuhan and Shanghai and, most importantly, studying the Chinese healthcare system. Read more about the nursing students' trip to China.

Photographic memories

The 1963 black-and-white photograph captures a sea of young faces. Some smile; some look pensive; some simply look away. In time, these students grew up, got married, moved away. The names and the stories behind the faces were lost. Until now. Read more about Dr. Benjamin's Filene's quest to find these students and share their stories.
