Craig Wilkes

Craig Wilkes (he/him) is a senior from Franklin Lakes, New Jersey studying Anthropology and Statistics. This summer, Craig was able to do research in Anthropology through the SLU fellows program.  His research focuses on the ways in which the Covid-19 pandemic affected funeral directors' work and the mourning process. This topic was inspired by an Anthropology course that covers how people and cultures deal with death, and was developed with the help of his faculty mentors.

Being raised by a single mother in a provincial Russian town, I am adept at setting goals and striving to achieve them, despite the challenges I have encountered. As a minority within my own country’s administrative division, Adygea Republic, I have always strived for diversity and inclusion of identities, experiences, and ideas. With such a mindset and a strong passion for natural sciences, I sought opportunities to enrich my scientific environment and learn from the expertise of an international community.

Hi, I'm Alessandro Marangelli '24 a freshman from the South of Italy. I grew up in Rome with my four siblings and I attended Liceo Artistico Caravillani before passing the selections for UWC. At UWC Costa Rica I finished my last two years of high school and learnt English and Spanish at an academic level. At UWC Costa Rica I learned about new cultures and how to respect them, perspectives about the world, and how to deconstruct our biases. This was achieved through the IB diploma but mostly thanks to his peers coming from 80 different countries.
