Morgan Marx

Bachelor of Liberal Arts, Interdisciplinary Studies

Morgan Marx, a life-long Juneau resident, is receiving her Bachelor of the Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, with emphases in anthropology and English.

 

“I want to go into archaeology,” she said. “Classes taught by Erica Hill have been really interesting to me. I took ancient civilizations, methods and theories of archaeology, death and burial, and [it] has really been great.”

Marx came to UAS after a year of school on the East Coast. Her plan was to save up money to return to college outside of Alaska, but she decided to stay after discovering the unique teacher-student relationships at UAS.

“I decided I wanted to stay at UAS after a teacher came up and talked to me about one of the papers I’d done in a previous semester. She remembered something I had written, and that really stuck with me. At that moment, I [realized the professors] were invested in whether I succeeded in a very personal way.”

Marx sees graduate school as an opportunity to continue to learn.

“I’m not ready to be done with the whole student experience,” she said, “Right after graduation, I plan to look at SUNY Binghamton University. I’m looking at an archaeology program there. I’m pretty sure by fall of 2013 I’ll be enrolled in a graduate program.”

Marx is always keeping active.

“I like to dabble in a lot of things,” she said. “I like taking art classes, not that I’m an artist, but I think taking those classes is [fantastic]. I enjoy hiking and my family owns a sailboat, so when the weather is good we sail.”

Marx also enjoys garage sales, which she said she is excited to do back in New York, possibly as an excuse to use her archaeology skills, as well as find some killer bargains.
