Whoosh Around the World

McDermott Scholars Andrew Vaccaro (right) and Eric Chen do the Whoosh at the Hakone Shrine in Japan in 2015. After taking a class on fantasy in Japanese literature, Vaccaro joined Chen during a trek to the island nation to study the country’s culture and how it is portrayed in Japanese media.

Comets are globetrotters. Whether it’s for business, studies or leisure, students and alumni visit all corners of the world. (Or the space above it.)

Whether you’re at home or abroad, keep in touch and show off your UTD love, Comets! Email [email protected] with your summertime Whooshes. You can also tag your social media photos with #whoosharoundtheworld.

Who knows — your photo could end up on this blog!
