Wash U Students Gather Real-World Insights During Tour of ESD

Serious college students love to keep learning even during a vacation – and ESD is always happy to serve as a guide to buoy their knowledge.

Marie Curatolo and Tim Zelazny of ESD’s Energy+Eco Group provided a tour of ESD’s Willis Tower headquarters to Washington University students during their fall break. More than a dozen young leaders from various fields of study learned about ESD’s living lab and how ESD is working globally to reduce carbon emissions.

ESD has a proud history of hosting college students. Executive Chairman Raj Gupta – a distinguished Wash U graduate and a Claremont McKenna College alumnus – has hosted students from Claremont.
