Happy Labor Day! Enjoy your day off. Come hang out with Dean Parrish on Wednesday. Free coffee. Interested in going to Argentina, Brazil, Thailand, or Vietnam this summer as a Stewart Fellow?

Reminder: Stewart Fellows applications are due Oct. 17, so get started now if you're hoping to spend next summer abroad.
