Anna Alston Ferguson, 2006
Curator for Washington National Cathedral

I have "an exciting, fulfilling, and challenging job and only a cross-curricular, globally-minded, useful liberal arts education from Dickinson prepared me for and allow[ed] me to thrive in it. I adored my time at Dickinson--the college itself, the activities, and most of all, my amazing art history classes."
