Remembering Christine Eickelman (1944-2024)

From the very beginning of the Dartmouth-AUK student exchange in 2005, Christine Eickelman (pictured fourth from the right) welcomed the opportunity to have AUK and Dartmouth students and faculty to her home. Her obituary explains why this exchange meant so much to her—and to us. Read it HERE. (Photo: The annual Dartmouth-AUK reception at the Eickelman home, Summer 2022.)
