Cydney Stasiulis

A world traveler before she came to North Central, Cydney was always interested in studying other cultures. "I knew I wanted to pursue anthropology because studying other cultures helps you understand the world better," she says. "North Central offered an anthropology major as well as lots of one-on-one attention, so it was a great fit."

Cydney completed a 12-week internship at The Field Museum in Chicago, where she learned about cataloging and housing artifacts. She also spent four weeks at the British archaeology summer school at Cambridge University’s Corpus Christi College. The program covered archaeological methods and theory and included extensive guided tours of archaeological sites and museums in London, Wessex and Cambridge. The highlight? A guided tour of the interior of Stonehenge, a rare opportunity. "It was one of the best experiences of my life," Cydney says. "I also explored Cambridge and traveled around the U.K. I met amazing people and can't wait to go back."
