Sapiens Symposium highlights anthropology students and alumna

Submitted by Jessica Falcone

The anthropology program hosted the Sapiens Symposium, its annual signature event, on April 26.

Several current anthropology students gave short talks and presentations about their anthropological work, travels and research. At the symposium, the anthropology department welcomed Sarah Trabert, a recent alumna of the program, back to campus to give a talk to current students about her educational trajectory. Trabert is currently an assistant professor of archaeology at the University of Oklahoma. After an awards ceremony, the program hosted a department potluck to thank Trabert and give her more time to mingle with students and faculty. Trabert also gave a seminar to current students about getting into graduate school.

The anthropology program congratulates the following students who received awards at the Sapiens Symposium event:
