Humans of Oglethorpe: Beatriz Zuloaga ’23

Beatriz “Bea” Zuloaga ’23 is a junior biopsychology major. “The most important person in my life was my Grandpa. Only my mom’s parents lived where I lived in Valencia [Venezuela].

Humans of Oglethorpe: Rachel Lester ’23

“I’ve been to Haiti twice, and the Dominican Republic, on a mission trip, which is probably the coolest thing I’ve ever done. We went for a week at a time and stayed with an organization.

Humans of Oglethorpe: Dr. Kate Keib

Humans of Oglethorpe: Kevin Dew
