Eugenia Asare’s internship at the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in Bethesda, Md., allowed her to work with the world’s leading anthrax experts.

Robert Lemaire, president of BURG Peer Education Network, was awarded the 2016 BACCHUS Outstanding Student Award for his involvement with BURG’s numerous influential activities on campus to promote a healthy and safe environment.

“It’s rewarding, even though you don’t get to see it right away,” Lemaire said about his efforts into BURG. “It’s kind of like running a marathon. As you go along, you just keep building up, and you get to the end, and you get to see that you finished, but you don’t always get to see all the lives you touched along the way.”
