FUMUN Stands Out at Harvard Conference

Last month six Fairfield Univeristy students, including two IL majors and one IB major, attended the Harvard National Model United Nations conference. Harvard University hosted the conference at the Park Plaza Hotel in the Boston financial district. The Fairfield Model UN team participated in the conference as the delegation of Lesotho, a small African country that neighbors South Africa. Fairfield students participated in four committees at the conference.
