Model UN Club competed in the National Model United Nations competition in Washington, D.C. November 3-5. The club attended two conferences last year in Atlanta and Charlotte, where the group won delegation awards, sparking their interest in attending this year’s national competition. At this year’s national event, the students competed against more than 60 colleges, including schools from China, Japan, Nigeria, Italy, and France, and they received a conference-wide delegation award. ECU students who attended and participated in the competition include Mariama Abubakri, Haley Creef (MUN Club President), Dylan Fulp, Zachary Hollopeter, Andrew McLeer (MUN Club Vice President), Gabriela Morales, Aji Njie, Kaitlyn Rose, Sorrell Saunders, and Braxton Smallwood.
