Douglass at a Glance
Shelley Merhav DRC’23 is a biomedical engineering major, volunteer EMT, and active Douglass community member. This month, she will serve as a student moderator on the Post-Graduation Education Opportunities panel at the Christiana Foglio DC’84 Douglass Career Conference. In this role, she will help facilitate conversation between panelists and students as they discuss how to navigate graduate school opportunities and pathways.
On October 23, 2021, Douglass College hosted the classes of 2020 and 2021 for an in-person celebration of their graduations. While the classes each had a virtual ceremony to honor their achievements, this in-person event allowed staff, graduates, and loved ones to meet face to face to celebrate Douglass excellence. Dean Jacquelyn Litt, Alexandra Anderson DRC’20, and Veronica Bido DRC’21 all gave remarks to congratulate the graduates and reflect on their unique journeys.
