My name is Amanda and I will be a super senior this fall. I will be graduating in December with a B.A. in anthropology. After school, I hope to enroll in the Peace Corps and do some traveling while making a difference in the world. I love being around new people and learning about different cultures, which is why Anthropology has been such a good fit for me. Although I haven’t come to a complete decision on what path I would like to take, career-wise, I am interested in archaeology and hope to get a better grasp on the specifics of the field through taking this course. I took ANP 363: Rise of Civilization with Ethan this past spring and it has definitely been my favorite anthropology class so far. The way his classes are run makes learning easy, and he’s a laid back and funny professor as well.
I am from Jackson, MI which is only about 35 miles south of Lansing. I grew up there my entire life, where I attended Northwest schools. I am very close with my family, especially my mom and older sister. I love MSU and East Lansing but can’t wait to get out of here and explore the rest of the world.
Good luck to everyone this semester and nice meeting you!
