Last weekend, Tufts held commencement ceremonies for a variety of museum studies programs. Students graduated with the Art History Department, the History Department, the Education Department, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. We were two of those graduates: Jess with the Art History department and Colleen with the Education department. As previous graduates know, it’s a bittersweet feeling. Being a student is a unique time that expands your knowledge and your skills. Hopefully we, along with all those who have graduated, are able to harness the curiosity that brought us to Tufts in the first place and channel it to create new and exciting endeavors in museums.
Colleen will be continuing on at her job with the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, teaching school programs and creating new children and family programming.
Jess will be continuing her jobs with the Harvard Botany Libraries and the Chinese Historical Society of New England (CHSNE).
We are excited to take our experiences here at the blog and at Tufts into our future ventures. We have enjoyed editing the blog this past year. Hearing your thoughts and ideas through comments and guest posts has been truly rewarding. However, with our graduation comes our departure from the editor-ship.
We are pleased to announce that your new blog editor will be Christina Errico. Christina is entering her second year in the Museum Education program. She has written several posts for the blog already – you can check them out here. While we will be sad to leave the blog, we know it will be in wonderful hands with Christina.
