Members of Phi Alpha Theta inaugurate the Undergraduate Lounge, Hamilton 551

The Fall 2017 marked a number of firsts for undergraduate studies in History, starting with the creation of a new Undergraduate Lounge in Hamilton 551, a community space for majors, minors, and other history students along with activities relating to Phi Alpha Theta and the History Club. Many thanks to the History office assistant Sharon Anderson for helping to plan and install the new lounge.

The History Department also staged its first “Pit Sit” during University Research Week (October 9-13), hosting a table where students could discuss the dynamic opportunities for undergraduate historical research in the discipline of History. In particular, as part of research week, the department was proud to feature Traces, our award-winning departmental journal that features publications by undergraduate and graduate students.

Last but not least, History has a new undergraduate coordinator, Natalie Albertson, who is already doing an amazing job providing administrative savvy to our undergraduate program.
