Model United Nations team finds success in Toronto

By Kay Nguyen

The Model United Nations team had a successful showing at the North American Model UN Conference in Toronto, Canada last month.

The team of 17 students represented many countries including Israel, Turkey, Sudan, Canada and Turkmenistan and were up against 22 teams from eight different countries.

Chelsea Ross and Justin Clark were named outstanding delegates, with Ross representing Israel on the Economic and Social Council and Clark representing Bogdan Trifunovic on the historical Yugoslav Crisis Committee.

Laura DeSanto, Brett Geschke, Rhiannon Zielinski and Nargiz Nesimova each earned honorable mentions at the conference.

In addition to the student organization, Model United Nations is also a 2-credit course at Oakland University taught by the political science department chair, Paul Kubicek.
