United World Colleges program brings students to Gettysburg

Mohamed Sehwail, of Palestine's West Bank, is one of three current students who came to Gettysburg College through the prestigious United World Colleges Davis Scholarships program, which is profiled in the newest issue of the College's magazine.

Also featured in the winter issue of Gettysburg are:

• The black hole at the center of our galaxy, as revealed by the research of Dr. Thomas Pauls, Class of 1965

• Campus Kitchen, which provides food to local community members in need

• More alumni memories of WZBT and Prof. Ralph Cavaliere

The magazine will reach alumni, parents, and friends of Gettysburg College by mail in late mid- to late January, and will also be posted on the College's website.

Gettysburg College is a highly selective four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences. With a student body of approximately 2,600, it is located on a 200-acre campus adjacent to the Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania. The college was founded in 1832.
