Hello All

Hello!  My name is Cristina and I am a senior at MSU.  I am majoring in Anthropology.  I have about a year left in my degree.  When I am done, I hope to do some archaeology, probably through a volunteer field school.  After that, I might apply to graduate schools or look for a job in my field (Maybe a CRM firm).  One day I hope to be a professor or work in a museum (or both?).  I have always been fascinated with Egypt, and so I am geeked to be taking this class.  In the past, I have taken a few art history classes that have touched on the basic cultural aspects of ancient Egypt.

I am also very interested in the field of Forensic Anthropology.  I am taking CJ 210 online this semester as well, which is Intro to Forensic Science.  I am not sure if it is an interest I will pursue in the future or not, but I have thoroughly enjoying getting to learn about the field so far (that class spans the whole summer, so I am about half way through).  The other part of physical anthropology that interests me is the evolutionary branch.  I took a class last semester ANP 440: Hominid Fossils, which I found very interesting (and challenging).  Really, I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up. (Maybe I should figure it out because I am pushing 30!)

I currently work full time for Elderly Instruments in Old Town.  I play some ukulele and I enjoy all kinds of music (Animal Collective, Queen, Green Day, Garth Brooks, Steve Miller Band, Gorillaz, Immortal Technique, Denna Carter, Godspeed You Black Emperor, My Chemical Romance, ETC… I know, I could be more ADD with my music choices if I tried!)  I love my job!  It is truly a wonderfully creative and inspiring place to be.  In my free time I enjoy playing games (MTG, Settlers, etc.), putting together jigsaw puzzles, cooking, watching movies, and going on walks (or swimming now that it is SUMMER!!).

Looking forward to the semester and, so far, love the set up of this class!

  1. From what I’ve heard we have an excellent Forensics Graduate School, but it’s very competitive. Maybe it’s something to look into?
