Graduate Student – George Mason University
I finished my degree in July of 2015 and continued with my job at Gounds Management for Longwood. In the fall of 2015 I spent a few months in New England working in a CRM crew while having numerous side adventures of my own, including being questioned by Canadian border police about an audio lecture on Roman history. When the dig season ended I returned to Farmville and continued landscaping, but I have been accepted to George Mason University’s Geographic and Cartographic Studies graduate program and will be attending in the fall, focusing on GIS and its applications.
I had no earthly idea of what I wanted to do when I first arrived at Longwood, but after hearing about the Anthropology program I realized I had loved the study all my life, albeit under different names. Now I’m excited to see how my Anthropology knowledge will support and expand upon what I will learn in grad school.
