Some of our alumni continue to research, write and teach history for a lifetime. Others work for museums. We also launch those who go on to be attorneys and physicians, or work in key roles in government or nonprofits.
We stay connected with our alums. We help them get where they want to go. It’s one of the benefits from having worked so closely with them as undergrads; we really know whether they are politically minded, teaching-centric or whether they are into the long ago and far away.
In fact, our alums, seeking to keep this close-knit atmosphere alive, funded a summer scholarship to support current students with research or internship stipends. The Leavell-Oberg Scholarship honors and continues a beloved Drew history professor’s legacy of supporting student research.
