International fellowships send students abroad
Qatar and Saudi Arabia
Two McDaniel juniors spent their holidays learning about new cultures after earning prestigious fellowships for study abroad.
Bilal Ali and John Collins received international exchange fellowships to Qatar and Saudi Arabia from the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations for their participation among a team of nine McDaniel students in the Model Arab League.
Ali and Collins were both provided with expense-paid study visits, and are expected to share their new knowledge of the nations they visited during their year-long fellowships.

Alums and Parent Serve in Afghanistan
College Connections Around the Globe
It was far from a typical gathering of McDaniel alumni and parents, but the photo of 2nd Lt. Ashley Meister ’13, Sgt. Maj. Thomas Suraci and Chief Warrant Officer 3 Jack Olsh ’92, ’93 in Bagram, Afghanistan, was shared all over social media from the instant the college posted it.
We thought you might want to know a little bit more about the faces in the photo and their McDaniel connections. All three are members of the Maryland National Guard who are part of the 1100th Theater Aviation Sustainment Maintenance Group Headquarters currently deployed to Afghanistan and Kuwait until April.
