We are very proud, this year, of the successful placement of our seniors and a recent alum in top flight graduate and other programs. We wish them all the best in their new courses of study (though we will miss them).

Megan Barrett’s senior project is entitled “St. Paul and the Formation of the Christian Community in Roman Corinth”. She has been accepted at Yale Divinity School and University of Chicago’s Department of Religious Studies. She has chosen to attend Yale.

Samantha Henderson’s senior project is “What’s in a Name? Onomastic Analysis of Gladiators in the Roman Empire”. Sam has been accepted for study toward a master's degree in social sciences at the University of Chicago and in historical archaeology at the University of Massachusetts in Boston. She has chosen to attend UMass in the fall. Henderson received a Women in Archaeology Internship at the Center for American Archaeology for the summer.

Katt Janson’s senior project is “The Jurymen” (a play about the death of Socrates written in the Greek play old lomedy style with Aristophanes as a model). Katt has been accepted at Western Michigan University’s Prague Summer Program for Photography and Creative Writing. She received the John Woods Scholarship from Western Michigan and a RISE Award from Randolph College to attend.
