Vox Pupuli: the Twilight edition

Hai there!

Vox encountered Bella out on a stroll on the Leavey Bridge this afternoon. The Pomeranian was more interested in food than the camera, but I managed to snap her en route to my bag of bagels.

Students, alumni, diplomats and faculty mingled and danced last Friday night away at the 88th annual Diplomatic Ball. The ball was put on by the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, hoping to unite “current and future leaders of international affairs.” This year’s ball took place at Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium and hosted about 800 students.

Also in attendance were 150 VIPs from 43 embassies and the wider GU community. According to chair of the Dip Ball committee Alex Pommier (SFS ’15), “notable guests included the ambassadors from Egypt, Italy, and Nepal, alumni such as Paula Dobriansky, and professors including Fr. Carnes, Prof. Kroenig, Prof. Potter, Prof. Lamb and Prof. Balzer.”

Dean of the SFS Carol Lancaster gave opening remarks for the evening, welcoming students and diplomats alike. The program continued with a speech by SFS Dean Mitch Kaneda to award Fr. Carnes a student nominated honor for best SFS professor.
