Daniel Caldwell (Sociology ’04) refined swings, taught pitching mechanics and gave coaches instructions for 46 straight days this spring, often working all day in 120-degree heat as he taught baseball skills and coaching techniques in Saudi Arabia.

He is unsure what he will do professionally, but he wants to contribute to society, and he thinks understanding public policy is a good starting place.
