Car­o­line Bynum and Made­line Drake made higher edu­ca­tion his­tory last week, according to North­eastern Uni­ver­sity pro­fessor Jose Buscaglia, becoming the first two stu­dents in the world to do co-​​op in Cuba.

Bynum and Drake will spend the next four months working for the Antonio Núñez Jiménez Foun­da­tion, a non-​​governmental orga­ni­za­tion named in honor of the late Cuban archae­ol­o­gist and geo­g­ra­pher. FANJ is pri­marily ded­i­cated to studying the impacts of cli­mate change on Cuba and pro­moting the environmental-​​​​consciousness of the country’s people, but it also runs a cul­tural ser­vices pro­gram aimed at pre­serving a diverse range of arti­facts and spreading the work of renowned Cuban intellectuals.

“I feel very for­tu­nate to have the oppor­tu­nity to live and work in a country I never thought I’d be able to explore,” said Bynum, a third-​​year human ser­vices major.
