George Carter Eberwine, '14
Carter Eberwine of Coshocton, Ohio, will graduate this coming spring with a B.S. degree in Chemistry, Biology, Political Science, and German.
Carter chose Muskingum because he felt the small class sizes would provide “opportunities for me to build good student-professor relationships and strive in my classes.” He also hoped the small campus community would allow him to gain leadership positions.
Carter is the president of his fraternity, the Stag Club; a member of Tri-Beta (Biology Honorary), Pi Sigma
Alpha (Political Science Honorary), Lambda Sigma (Sophomore Honorary), and ODK, the junior-senior honorary. He also formerly served on Student Senate.
This past summer, Carter spent two months interning in a hospital in Munich, Germany, where he worked in the gastroenterology department on a project that was “aimed toward correlating obesity and diet with the severity of chronic esophageal inflammation and Barrett’s Esophagus.” Carter found the internship by e-mailing research hospitals in Germany and asking if they were able to accept interns.
His internship in Germany is not the only travel experience Carter has had. In the summer of 2012, he traveled for two months in Europe. Carter explains: “In the United Kingdom and Germany I distributed surveys for my senior seminar in Political Science. This project was entitled ‘Which Factors Most Influence Europeans’ Opinions on the United States?’ and the survey tested four different variables that were hypothesized to have an effect on these opinions. The research was successful and I was invited to present my paper at the Midwest Political Science Association’s annual conference in Chicago, Illinois.”
Before coming to Muskingum, Carter says, he “did not realize that so many international opportunities or leadership positions existed here.
