This past summer, Christina Dineson ’14, goalkeeper for the College women’s soccer team, spent a week in Germany with the Connecticut Football Club (CFC), competing in three games against German teams. The CFC, based in Hamden, is made up, primarily, of top high school players from Connecticut. Recently Dineson was featured in a New Haven Register story written by Michael Humby ’12 during his fall internship at the paper.

Also last summer, but thousands of miles away from Germany, biology major Alyssa Avery ’13 participated in an Oceans Research internship in Namibia, on the Atlantic southern coast of Africa. She worked on the Namibian Dolphin project, a study of the ecology of three dolphin species in the coastal waters, and the Mossel Bay Cetacean Project, which is tracking both dolphins and whales.
Taking part in the same Oceans Reseach project this coming summer will be Christina Gomez ’14, also a biology major. “As soon as I heard Alyssa talking about her internship — tracking and marking dolphins and whales, and seeing how their life is threatened by so many factors — I knew I wanted to go to Namibia. It sounded so exciting.”
