Sarrah Harris '14Major/Minor: Anthropology major with minors in art history and museums studies.
Where are you from? Ephratah, NY
Why did you choose Hartwick? When did you know Hartwick was for you?
My Visit Day in the spring went well and the research I did on the campus drew me to Hartwick.
What does "theory in practice" mean to you?
To take what you have learned in the classroom and use it in a job-like setting or in research.
What are your classes like?
The professors are very close to their students, and they go out of their way to encourage you and help you succeed.
What organizations, teams and activities are you involved in?
I am the secretary of the Anthropology Club, the president of Craft Club, the treasure of the Ballroom Dance Club and the secretary for the campus' Habitat for Humanity chapter.
How did you first get involved with the Yager Museum?
My freshman year I was looking for work study and one of my friends suggested that I apply for a job in the museum. I ended up taking a museum studies course and became a museum studies minor!
How do you describe Hartwick to your friends back home?
Hartwick is a small school, but small is not bad. There is a strong sense of community and strong student-faculty relations.
Where will you go from here/what's next for you?
After graduation I plan on applying to jobs and graduate schools. I hope to work for a non-profit museum in collections management or administration.
