To finish off the successful year, Penn’s IAA intercol team and other members traveled to the Windy City for ChoMUN conference hosted by the University of Chicago on April 2-5. Held at the beautiful Palmer House Hilton in downtown Chicago, the conference emphasized expanding traditional interpretations of crisis committees; committee placed delegates in a 7th century Sasanian Empire as advisors to a child king. In addition to the conference, IAA was able to explore the exciting streets of Chicago, visiting the historical bean, enjoying a night of karaoke and meeting up with an IAA alumna. As a strong finale to the year, Penn’s team won several awards including: Best Delegate (Dhrupad Bhardwaj, Kent hutchinson) Outstanding Delegate (Henry Chang, Ashish Sharma), Honorable Delegate (Lenny Wei, Elise Pi) and Verbal commendations (Krishnan Sethumadhavan, Arnav Shah). Delegates not only demonstrated a strong presence at ChoMUN but also showed intense Penn spirit for all four days, as they look forward to more successes for the new year.
