Rose Gabler

As an art history major at North Central, Rose is learning to fully comprehend and appreciate historic and modern works.

“My classes are both fascinating and challenging,” she says. “They have given me a new appreciation for art from every era, as well as more passion for modern and contemporary art.”

Rose interned at the State Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, earning course credit as she learned about the day-to-day operations of a popular museum.

“I spent a lot of time working with art curators and critics learning about everything from inventory to exhibition staging and restoration. I also was able to learn about the communist history of Russia,” she says.

After graduating, Rose plans to join a family business that opens museums all over the world. She’s minoring in international business to develop a better understanding of financial operations.

During her senior year, Rose studied in Milan, Italy. Submersing herself in a new culture was an eye-opening experience.

“The world has become a lot smaller with many different cultures and nationalities at our doorstep,” she says. “North Central College has a host of opportunities for all students to engage and succeed internationally; we just have to apply them.”
