What Were Your Academic Experiences?

Meet Blaine Burgess'20

Geology and Anthropology Major from Danville, Ill.

Blaine traveled across the Atlantic to explore a longtime interest in uncovering the lives of ancient peoples, their architecture, and how to preserve it in an age of tourism - a journey into the world of archaeology he plans to continue at Beloit.

"I used this study abroad experience as a way to gauge whether or not I had been correct in choosing to pursue Archaeology. Since I enjoyed it so much, I can easily see myself performing other archaeological tasks and even continuing my work back in Orkney."
