20 Years of Archaeology at UE Homecoming 2010 - Speed Dating

We celebrated "20 Years of Archaeology at UE" during Homecoming November 12-13, 2010.  We kicked off the weekend with a presentation on the Murlo Excavations by Alexis C. ('94) and two students - Mike ('12) and Megan ('12) - reported on their excavation experiences abroad last summer.  We then positioned returning alumni at specific tables and sent groups of students around to each station as in "speed dating."  It was a great opportunity for students to learn about the diverse career paths of our alumni and for alumni to meet some of our students!  After speed dating, about 40 of us went to Turoni's and enjoyed giant pizzas.  Later that evening, Nathan ('02) gave a very interesting presentation about his research on coins from the Flavian and Trajanic periods.  
Chris ('05) and Kirsten ('06) talk to students about CRM. 

Andrew ('94) talks to students about publishing.

Nathan ('02) and Alexis ('94) represent academia.

Abby ('02) talks to students about graphic design careers.

Sarah ('06) and Micki ('06) represent K-12.

Andrea ('10) and Tori ('10) discuss their experiences as recent graduates.
