On Nov. 20, Manhattan College’s ethics team competed in the regional division of the International Ethics Bowl held at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H., and prevailed as one of the top contenders that will battle for the national bowl next March in Cincinnati, Ohio. David Miller and Michael Woo, seniors from Manhattan, finished in the top four in the competition, which helped the College’s team to qualify for nationals.

Sophomores Nicholas Grecco, Daniel Lonergan and Suemi Mendez are also members of Manhattan’s team, which triumphed in two of the three preliminary matches, and won the quarterfinal round against Merrimack College.

The Association of Practical and Professional Ethics (APPE) sponsors the International Ethics Bowl annually as a way to involve students by discussing and debating difficult ethical cases and controversies.
