    Dentons, a full service, multinational law firm with 120 offices across 52

  • After I finished at Dartmouth, I worked two years as a reporter in New York.
    My time on the FSP in Rome with Professor Stewart was probably my happiest
    time in college, and eventually in New York I got the idea to apply for

    quality newspapers — I was working as a media reporter in New York
    covering print media. I...

    Classics Department's 1997 Foreign Study Program in Rome, and also served as
    ancient coin intern at the Hood Museum of Art in 1998-99. This was my first
    opportunity to work directly with ancient objects, and although it took some
    time, this truly helped to shape my professional career. Following
    graduation, I excavated in the Athenian Agora with the American School of
    Classical Studies, but did...
