Anthropology, Global Studies
Why you chose your major
I was an undeclared student for almost my whole freshman year. Coming into college, I already had an interest in Anthropology and after taking a few introductory courses I decided that I wanted to declare it as a major. When talking to my advisor my first semester she asked me about my interests and mentioned she thought I might like to study Global Studies. I wasn't aware that Global Studies was a major, but I took one of the introductory courses and really liked it. After the first course, I knew I wanted to take more courses covering similar material.
One of my favorite courses I have taken is Introduction to Biological Anthropology. This is a required course for my anthropology major and going into it I was a concerned because of the biological aspect of the course. However, I ended up really enjoying the material that the class covered, specifically the different species along the human evolutionary line. This course sparked an interest for a different aspect of anthropology that I hadn't previously thought about. A course that I have really enjoyed outside of my major is Classical Mythology. This was a fun, interesting class that pointed out many of the impacts the classical world still has on today's culture.
The different campus organizations I am involved with include CAS ambassadors, Honors, Ambassadors, and Greek life. As part of these organizations I get the opportunity attend events such as Dance Marathon and The Big Event. I also enjoy participating in the intramural soccer leagues and going climbing at the Outdoor Adventure Center!
Why you chose Nebraska
When looking at different colleges, I knew I wanted a bigger school and also that I wanted to be a little farther away from home. My dad is from Nebraska so I visited campus. I was given a great tour and was able to speak with different advisors in my interest areas. I really liked the campus and was offered financial aid which also contributed to my decision.
