Muskingum’s 175th Anniversary

Hey Bloggers,

I thought this week since I talked about my class load, I would explain one of the classes I am taking in a little more detail.

I am, as I have mentioned an English major, but I have an incredible love for history.

But luckily for me, I’ve had a great experience with the history department too, since I’ve been here.

( I have the best of both worlds)

I am currently working on an internship with three other Muskies and two professors on a museum quality exhibit celebrating Muskingum’s 175th anniversary this coming March of 2012.

So what does that mean?
• I get class credit for doing something I love.
• I get to spend hours every week searching through the College archive for lost Muskingum artifacts.
• But most importantly, I get to spend the entire semester doing something I really enjoy, that will have an incredible outcome and I have something to look forward to.

Will I ever do anything like this ever again? Probably not, although I do enjoy it, but it has and will continue to be, an absolutely amazing experience.

So for the rest of this semester, with whatever free time I have in the day, it will be spent in the archives while I do a great deal of research on traditions, like that of May Day and Homecoming, along with, learning about social clubs and their transformation over the past 175 years.

I hope to see many of you at the exhibit come next Spring,

Until then,

Katie
