Don't be afraid to share your opinion or ask questions. Cultivate a support system. Figure out what you want and choose your career path accordingly. For International Women in Engineering Day on June 23, Boeing engineering Amanda Nemec, who graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering in 2001, shares lessons and advice she's picked up (and given) throughout her career. In addition to receiving financial assistance, Dorrance Scholars participate in a pre-college summer bridge program and a humanities summer program. They also have the opportunity for international study and travel and innovative entrepreneurship experience, as well as mentoring and tutoring.
A century ago, the Apex logging camp outside of Tusayan was bustling with more than 100 men working on the Grand Canyon railroad. Today, the activity looks a little different. Archaeologist Emily Dale, her TA and six students are spending the month of June unearthing remains from the camp, piecing together the puzzle that is the logging camp. Dale's favorite find so far? Part of a radio from 1926.
