Marine alumni return to campus​​

On Oct. 20, Chancellor Wrighton welcomed back two 2009 alums, Harrison Suarez and Michael Haft — now both first lieutenants in the U.S. Marine Corps — who
presented the university with a U.S. flag that was flown while they served in Afghanistan. The men personally thanked Wrighton and WUSTL for preparing them to serve their country by teaching them to think critically and interact with different cultures. Wrighton presented the men with gifts as a token of appreciation on behalf of the university.
