Internship at the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, FL

Maddie Emholtz did an internship this summer at the Naval Aviation Museum, working with the museum's collections. She did a little bit of everything: cataloging new collections, cataloging old collections on back log, the conservation of artifacts, the design of exhibits, the design of booths at events, the archiving of documents and pictures, and researching the history of artifacts. A good job for a History major. Maddie arranged the internship herself, but she got help to pay for it through AU's Great Lakes Internship Grant Program.  The picture below shows her at the booth at the Battle of Midway Memorial, which she helped to design. 

Summer Trips Abroad

Being the curious, adventurous people that they are, many history and political science majors studied or took trips abroad this summer.  Here is a group of them who took the AU trip to Israel.  Here they are at the Sea of Galilee.

And this one shows the group at the Israeli Parliament:
