Common Book Conference

Congratulations to the CUSP students on a successful Common Book Conference. Thank you to those who came out! The Bothell Reporter featured our conference on their website with a short interview from first year student, Feruza Ghias. Feruza said "I am grateful for the experience. I got a lot out of the discussions when other students shared their own interpretations and understanding of historical references from Henrietta Lacks lifetime. I also learned a lot about different topics."
