Commencement at Carleton College

What kind of research are you working on this summer?

This summer, I am at the University of Chicago studying the development of education in Jamaica after the abolition of slavery in 1834. 

What have you learned so far?

During my time at University of Chicago, I have learned more about the types of qualities I value in an institution. This has helped me to think through the kinds of graduate programs I would like to pursue.
