WWC alum gives “virtual guest lecture”

WWC alum Jesse Fripp reconnected to his alma mater this semester by giving a “virtual guest lecture” to students in an introductory geography course. The topic of conversation was microfinance, which is Fripp’s specialty as Vice President for Global Microfinance at ShoreBank International in Washington, D.C. Fripp had a chance to see and hear from students via Skype, and the students were able to see Fripp and ask questions about his work in microfinance. The Department of Global Studies hopes to host more such “virtual meetings” in the coming semesters.
