Outstanding Anthropology Students
Marie came to UCCS with both coursework and practical experience in archaeology. She was originally drawn to the discipline because she loves to be outside and explore the world and history around her; that passion was solidified by the first fieldwork that she did in Mexico when she was 18. Marie’s coursework is excellent and she completed an internship working with Drs. Larkin and Church analyzing archaeological materials from the archaeological field school. After graduation, she would like to pursue a Master's in either GIS, or Cultural Anthropology with a focus on immigration. Outside of school she enjoys spending time with her family, long distance running, mountain biking, and gardening.
Sarah is an Anthropology major at UCCS with a minor in Criminal Justice. She has worked with Dr. Cepon-Robins on her Rural Embodiment and Child Health (REACH) project to help Dr. Cepon-Robins with literature reviews and to help create dissemination materials for participants and the general public. When she is not studying or working, she is typically hiking some of her favorite trails, such as the Bluffs and Red Rock Canyon, with her dog. She also spends her free time watching her favorite shows like Criminal Minds and Bones. She hopes to pursue a graduate degree in Forensic Anthropology. Sarah is well deserving of the Outstanding Student in Biological Anthropology award.
