Kelly Hook’s “To Russia With Love”

 | 


NC State’s student body president Kelly Hook (Political Science, ’11), is back from a whirlwind trip to Russia.

Officially invited by the Russian Federation’s Head of International Relations Department, Kelly joined 14 other student body presidents from universities like Princeton, Duke, and Emory on the goodwill tour. The group toured Moscow, met with the CEO of a Russian venture company, participated in a discussion with Presidential Economic Advisor Arkaday Dvorkovich, attended U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s speech at Moscow State University, and traveled to the ancient city of Yaroslavl.
