Cleo Warner | Overall Winner
Sophomore Cleo Warner, Environmental Studies major, took the Contemporary Buddhist Activism course.
Cleo had this to say: "In the mornings we would accompany the nuns in their alms runs as they walked around the neighborhood collecting the food the locals offered to them. This is a highly regarded practice as the devoted followers gain merit by offering their food to the nuns. I was struck by this little boy who appeared to be on one of his first offerings with his parents. He was noticeably shaken up from the experience, but unbelievably cooperative and showed maturity seemingly beyond his year throughout the process."
