4. What do you like to do for fun?

5. What have you learned while working at the library?
Working in the library in the Archives has allowed me to learn many things about the history of Lycoming College that are not common knowledge, especially in regards to the old buildings and former students. I have also gotten to see how artifacts can be properly archived and preserved which will help greatly in my future endeavor to be an archaeologist.
