Hamilton College welcomes local student


Greater Riverdale resident Jaweoo Bang, a junior studying economics, has started the Hamilton College New York City program this program for the fall semester.

The program is structured for students to intern, attend seminars and complete an independent project.

This semester’s program is labor markets, directed by Professor of Economics Derek Jones. Jones and students examine theoretical and empirical questions concerning the labor market. Various topics are discussed: labor demand, private and public sectors, unemployment, effects of unions, and more.

Bang spends four days a week as an intern at The Korea Society, a nonprofit organization that promotes greater awareness for the people of the United States and Korea.

Hamilton College is a liberal arts institution with open curriculums that give students an open area to study.
