Commencement 2019

The 2019 edition of the School of Anthropology Commencement Brunch had a great turnout last Saturday, May 11. Drs. Vance Holliday and Robert Schon shared the duty of introducing the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science candidates to those present, and Dr. Ivy Pike introduced the Ph.D. candidates, several of whom are shown in the photo above (photo by François Lanoë). Congratulations once again to our 2019 graduates!

Among the award-winning undergraduates we singled out in last week’s issue was Chelsea Forer (pictured at right), who graduated with both a Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Anthropology and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religious Studies for Health Professionals, with a minor in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. We told that Chelsea was receiving the SoA’s Leadership Award and the Honors College Dean’s Award of Excellence, and was a finalist for the Honors College Outstanding Senior Award. What we didn’t know at the time was that Chelsea also received the College of Humanities Outstanding Senior Award and was the subject of a Daily Wildcat article! You can read “Graduating senior inspires a humanist perspective” here. Congratulations, Chelsea, on an outstanding academic career (thus far)!
