Alums Triumphant Return

Monday, December 21, 2009

Ryland Breeding (09 History) stopped by the HPJ offices during his Christmas Break from Virginia Commonwealth University. Ryland reports that his classes went well, and that he was enjoying being a graduate student, though the workload was he

avy. Topping his workload list was Historiography, which meant a great deal of reading and discussion of works that illustrate the various schools of historical inquiry. Ryland led discussion on a book concerning the Great Cat Massacre in France during the 19th century - gotta love reading that sort of social/labor history! He also mentioned that the transition from life in small town Ada, to Richmond was going well and that southern culture was not too much of a shock.

It's always great to see our alums and hear of their adventures! Best of luck to Ryland next semester as he starts to narrow in on his Thesis topic!
