History of Art Alumni: Be in touch!

If someone were to ask: "what did you do with your art history degree?" - what would you say? In the next issue of the newsletter we'll be launching a new feature in which we print good stories about what happened to our art history majors and minors after they received the BA. It will give you, our alumni, at any stage of life, whatever path you've pursued (sometimes far from art history), a platform to speak about what a Humanities degree has done for you. For the present, we ask that you fill out the Alumni Update Form and let us know in brief what you've been up to since your days in Tappan Hall. Warm thanks!
