I hope that those of you who came out to Archaeology Day had a great time! We had a lot of fun activities to do like cross mending, writing your name in Maya glyphs, flint-knapping with Prof. Carballo, and much more! However, if you missed Archaeology Day at the Gabel, do not despair. You will always have next year to come and enjoy the activities. Pictures are soon to follow this post, so watch out for those.
Note: All meetings will be held in the Gabel Museum (STO235)
In other news, we are having a graduate student- led workshop this TUESDAY, 10/22, from 6-7PM! The topic for this week is CV/ Resume building for academic or job applications. It will be an interactive and hands-on workshop between graduate and undergraduate students, so please come with working CV’s or Resumes. However, even if you currently do not have a CV or Resume come anyways and get started on one with the help of one the graduate students.
Come and benefit from the workshop! We will also have free pizza for everyone who comes, so show up hungry and eager for some CV/ Resume building!
In addition, we will have our regular flint-knapping session this WEDNESDAY, 10/23, from 7-8PM! Learn how to make stone tools out of obsidian, chert, or flint just like ancient peoples used to. No previous experience is necessary, so do not be afraid to come!
Lastly, our next themed event is coming up NEXT TUESDAY, 10/29, from 6-7PM! The theme will be Myths and Monsters, in the spirit of Halloween~
