What’s the news?

To prevent summer learning melt, West Virginia University’s Outward Bound provided a three-week summer program, allowing local high school students a first-hand look at what college is really about. This Friday, students will present their case studies in Forensic Anthropology. 

Quotes and Comments

“In less than three weeks the students have learned and applied the methods used by Forensic Anthropologists to estimate the sex, age, and stature of an individual using only a handful of human bones.”—Susanne Donaldson, Teaching Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology and Sociology.

“Our goals are to help pique curiosity, stem summer learning melt, alleviate anxiety of the unknown, and to instill confidence in their abilities.” –Frances Clark, Director, West Virginia University Upward Bound/Trio

Students will present Friday, July 14 at 1:30 p.m. in the Mountainlair Ballrooms.
