Administrators and students gathered in Doha, Qatar, today to mark the formal opening of Northwestern’s overseas campus.

The program first began offering degrees in August and now has 38 first-year students in its journalism and communication programs. The students and faculty met with NU President Henry Bienen, board members, students from the U.S. and other administration members and shared their work as part of the event.

We will have a full story on the trip to Qatar in our first issue March 31.
