Fourteen colleges and universities from the Northeast came to campus for the regional competition of the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl. Teams of students debated 15 cases that address ethical dilemmas, ranging from attractiveness discrimination in hiring to the freedom to burn the Qur’an.

Union’s team members, and their majors, are: Pieter Boskin ’12 (biochemistry, philosophy), Bui Duy Thanh Mai ’12 (Asian studies, philosophy), Alana Curran ’14 (neuroscience), Samuel Fein ’12, (political science), Yaqi Gao ’15, Jordon Hastings ’13 (economics), Trevor Martin ’14 (philosophy), Melissa Moskowitz ’14 (political science) Katherine Murray ’13 (psychology), Remy Ravitzka ’15, Daniel Roginski ’12 (math), Lea Tessitore ’12 (political science) and Ryan Vineyard ’12 (political science).

Union’s young ethicists squared off in three rounds against teams from Buffalo State College, Colgate University, Dartmouth College, Franklin Pierce University, Husson University, Manhattan College, Marist College, Moravian College, Notre Dame of Maryland University, Stevens Institute of Technology, St. John’s University, the University at Buffalo and Villanova University.
