“We explored the ways that borders influence the ancient and modern world — and everything that could go into the concept of the border,” says Fiona Kelly ’21, an ancient and classical studies major from Waterbury, Connecticut.

“The overall experience was really open-ended, which allowed for a lot of personalization of these projects,” she says. “I’ve always loved the humanities and the classical world, but hiking Hadrian’s Wall really solidified my interest in being an Ancient and Classical Studies major. Being able to focus on areas outside of the city of Rome, and the inner-Roman empire, and looking more at the outer provinces is something I really fell in love with.”

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts and sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
