(BA classics and English, with a creative writing emphasis ’17)

Libby enrolled in the honors class, Ethics in Archaeology, where she studied financial, legal, and political considerations in the collection and preservation of ancient artifacts. She was a founding member of the Archaeological Ethics Bowl team and an intern with the Robinson Collection of Greek and Roman Antiquities at the UM Museum.

After a year as an AmeriCorp volunteer in Washington, D.C., Libby entered a graduate program in Museum Studies at the University of San Francisco, with an ultimate career goal of a curatorial position at a historic house or museum where she could use the space to address contemporary social justice issues.
