Friday, Jan. 27, participants from the Mason School of Business MBA Program participated in the Water Walk across campus to raise awareness about the stark inequalities in water availability between the United States and developing nations. Over 40 students carried gallon-and-a half blue buckets from Lake Matoaka to the main campus. The entire journey entailed a mile of walking while carrying a 13-pound bucket. The walk was meant to simulate the struggles that many women experience in developing countries as they attempt to bring water to their families.
