Future plans: I'm waiting for news about the Fulbright. If I receive the grant, I'll be in Israel from October 2002 until June 2003 doing research on oil lamps of the Lower Galilee. I plan to attend graduate school beginning in 2003.
Quotable: "At Centre, I've made friends that will no doubt last a lifetime. Between my classmates, my professors, and the staff the experience is one I wouldn't trade for anything. The abroad trips Ive taken have changed my life forever and I can honestly say that I'm happy with myself, my fraternity, my teams (both field hockey and golf), and how my future is shaping up."
