50: AnthroNews: Outreach

20 05 2008

This year, part of the Fresno State senior capstone experience (Anth 195) included student outreach presentations at local high schools and community colleges where anthropology students educated prospective students about the discipline and the department. Lead by upperclassmen Steven Colagiovanni, the great success of this effort was noted by the entire Anthro Department, which plans to continue these efforts in the following year. The schools were so impressed by the presentations that many have invited our students to return next Spring.
