Alumni News: 2010s

Lauren Brincat '10 - I am currently working as the FAO Schwarz Foundation Fellow at the Museum of the City of New York. The Fellowship funds recent graduates to work full-time for two years in Boston, Philadelphia, and New York in major education-based nonprofits. At MCNY I educate school groups in guided school programs as well as research, write, and develop new school programs drawing from the Museum's exhibitions and collections. (12/13/2010)

Laura Buchanan '10 - I am finishing a field archaeology internship at Crow Canyon Archaeological Center in Cortez,Colorado. It's been a great experience digging in the southwest over the past couple months! Next week I head back to Virginia, and I'll be interning in the repatriation department of the National Museum of the American Indian through the end of the year.

Laura Buchanan '10 - A story about Dr. Voigt: I took my senior seminar - Archaeology of Cities - with Dr. Voigt in fall of 2009. It was a small class, but that made for an enriching and fun enviornment. One day we were discussing definitions of civilization, and I (cheekily) commented - "Oh, and it's a computer game." Dr. Voigt responded quickly - "Yes! I play it every day." Apparently Civilization - along with a hot cup of coffee - was a good way to wake up and get ready for a busy day at Gordion. Whenever I think of this story it puts a smile on my face! (4/7/2011)
