NASA Internship to Help Fuel Astronauts

A lifelong passion for food and nutrition inspired Gabrielle Zimmerman to pursue a career as a registered dietitian. This past summer, the MS in Nutrition & Dietetic Practice/RDN student took this interest to new heights, interning at NASA’s Nutritional Biochemistry Laboratory where she designed special meal plans for astronauts.

Celebrating First-Generation Students

First-generation college students often face unique academic and financial challenges—including, on average, lower post-graduation salaries than their continuing-generation peers. Recognizing these challenges and aiming to create programming that supports Jefferson’s first-generation students, the University hosted the First-Generation Celebration Luncheon, an inaugural campus-wide event for first-generation students.

By converging people, ideas and perspectives, we find innovative solutions for real-world problems. We focus on our craft to drive progress and growth in architecture, business, design, engineering, fashion & textiles, health, medicine, nursing, science and social science.
