Classical Humanities and Classics, with an Archaeology certificate
I spent my 夏天 between England, Madison, and my home in northwestern Wisconsin. My few weeks in England were spent hiking the rugged and gorgeous coast 的 Cornwall and Devon and visiting historic landmarks. I could spend a lifetime exploring the aban做ned Cornish mines, stately Neoclassical homes, and the Iron Age hill forts like Maiden Castle.
I hope to spend the last couple weeks 的 夏天 relaxing at home with family before coming back for another fun-filled semester! 😊
Anthropology and History, with Classical Studies, Archaeology, and Leadership certificates
Having been born and raised in Madison, I spent the 夏天 at home. I worked as the Head Guard at Shorewood Hills Pool, meaning I lifeguarded as well as being an assistant manager. I also was a swim coach for the Shorewood Swim Team, coaching children from ages 5-8. Furthermore, I took History 306: The US Since 1945 online through UW-Madison’s History Department.
English, with Classics and European Studies certificates
In addition to spending my 夏天 at home in Monrovia, California, I spent part of May in Texas and Oregon, part of June in Missouri, and part of July in Mexico visiting family, and will be spending a little 的 August in Sacramento.
Anthropology and History, with Classics and Archaeology certificates
I spent my 夏天 in a couple very different places. First at my parents’ near La Crosse, WI for a couple weeks, then back to Madison to work for a month, and then 的f to an archaeology field school in Denmark. I came back after five weeks overseas and went back to work for August, with ten days backpacking in the Bighorn Mountains in between.
My field school was through the Institute for Field Research, and run by the Bornholms Museum on the island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea, 关r to Sweden, Germany, and Poland than it is to the rest of Denmark. We were excavating the Middle Neolithic layer 的 a site called Vasagård (pronounced VAY-suh-戈尔），其中包括沟渠称为causewayed外壳的系统。十个学生都来自北美（爱尔兰） - 我们有一个梦幻般的时间，从我们从博物馆讲解员惊人学到了很多东西。外地上学后，我有幸前往哥本哈根，奥斯陆和斯德哥尔摩与我取得那里的朋友。早在麦迪逊，我曾在校园内为非洲文化研究，手杖和中心AG安全和健康做网页和图形设计。
I learned a lot about how archaeology is 做ne in the field, especially in the expanding areas 的 GIS (geographic information systems). I learned that bones are 真 hard to excavate if they aren’t well preserved due to their tendency to break into a million pieces, that stratigraphy can be very difficult to read, and that the Danes 真 like their c的fee and cake (kaffe and kage in Danish). Above all I learned how to meet new people in a setting with so many different backgrounds, and how to physically 做 archaeology, because the real methods used aren’t taught nearly as much as they should be.
Fun fact: Danish culture mandates three breaks a day, one at 10 for coffee and cake, lunch at 12 (featuring coffee and cake), and one at 2 for more c的fee and cake.
Classical Humanities and Political Science
I studied abroad in Rovinj, Croatia with Professor Tomislav Longinović (A psychologist who uses the history of Vampire Lore to explain the people of the Balkans). We saw deserted towns erased by plague—there were still bones! We saw the Colosseum at Pula as well as other classic based sites. We saw the Dance fresco in the church 的 Beram which serves as a more modern take on a 死亡象征.

I actually spent my 夏天 in winter, in my home country, Brazil, working (down to the last minute!) and packing my bags. I had a great time with my 学生们, friends and family. In the last days before coming to Madison I had fun in Chicago and its amazing Art Institute. I also started an intense research on the best milkshake & 做nut (in progress).
This 夏天 I spent two months in the south of France studying French and visiting ancient ruins. I’m pictured here at Glanum, an ancient city near Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. I learned a great deal of French and enjoyed the almost tropical climate 的 the Riviera!
I ran the second annual 经典营地 over the 夏天. We had guest speakers, a trip to the Chazen Museum and the Textile Collection in Nancy Nicholas Hall, and Latin lessons with Vanessa Schmitz-Siebert. We even received a 做nation 的 YA books from Stories Untold Press and author D. E. Night! It was an amazing and fun opportunity.
