Graduating Seniors Head off to Diverse Futures, Rising Seniors in the Field

May 23, 2011


After commencement today our Graduating Sociology Majors went off to various exciting and diverse futures. These included working for a major global corporation in Chicago, entering medical school in New York city, going to graduate school in Sociology, and heading off to Cambridge University in England on a Fellowship to develop the senior thesis into a book. Meanwhile some rising seniors will be spending the summer on fieldwork. Ben Robbins is in Nebraska interviewing high school students and their parents about college selection, Mary Toothman is at an alternative community in Tennessee looking at its understandings of health and illness, and Kathleen Powers is in Algeria exploring at the role of iconic process and graffiti writing in revolutionary protest.
