UW20 Alumn Jesse Regis wins Eckles Prize

First-year research featured in Columbian College of Arts and Sciences newsletter.

"For Jesse Regis, freshman year was spent seriously researching a topic about which he was passionate. What started out as a class assignment for University Writing (UW20) became a “sort of rite of passage” and a personal quest to uncover The George Washington University’s role in protesting and ending the Vietnam War. For his in-depth research using the University Archives, among other sources, Regis was the first-place winner of this year’s Eckles Prize." From Sophomore Researches GW's Role in Vietnam (CCAS Newsletter--By Corissa Rodgers). He is shown with finalists and fellow UW20 alumns Nancy Barry and Hilary Swaim
