Current Students: Onyinye Kanu
Onyinye Kanu ’09
Anthropology modified with AAAS; Pre-Med track
F08-S09 D-plan: R-L-R
Favorite and least favorite thing about department: Great professors who donít have support from the College leave.
Important info for potential majors: Talk to people about this major. There are a lot of courses outside of the AAAS course listing that could count for the major or for the modifier, you just have to ask about it.
Talk to me if: you need help with fitting it all in your D-Plan. It can usually work.
Most valuable academic information learned: Take a Professor to lunch, youíre more memorable that way.
Favorite class and professor: Lats 31- Constructing Race and Ethnicity in the US with Professor Christina Gomez; This class made sophomore summer actually matter. Anth 33- Crossing Over: Latino Roots and Transitions with Professor Lourdes Gutierrez-Najera; There was actually some fieldwork involved in this course that allowed me to get to know a friend more and understand what Anthropologists do out in the field.
