Emily Angelucci ’24 is a double major in archaeology and anthropology and a former Dickinson tour guide who enjoys photography, classic literature and learning about global cultures. A class in museum studies, offered through the art-history department, led Emily to an internship at The Trout Gallery, Dickinson’s campus museum. Through that experience, Emily learned how to plan and present a professional-quality exhibition. She also learned art techniques, how museum staff develop and maintain relationships with donors, and how museum pieces are catalogued.
Clubs and organizations:
Kappa Alpha Theta, The Trout Gallery (intern), Arabic Club and Liberty Caps (tour guides).
Order of Omega and Alpha Lambda Delta honor societies.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.
Best thing about my Dickinson experience so far:
Best thing about my major:
How detailed the subject matter is in every course I have taken.
Favorite place on campus:
The Trout Gallery.
Roman Art and Archaeology taught by Adjunct Professor in Archeology Nikki Cummings. Professor Cummings was absolutely incredible, and I learned a lot.
As I kid, I wanted to be…
… an archaeologist.
About my internship:
I interned at The Trout Gallery. I actually created this internship with Professor of Art History Phillip Earenfight after taking his museum-studies course. I wanted to learn more about museum innerworkings, which is what we focused on in the internship. I learned every step of the exhibition process, the relationship between a museum and its donors, various art techniques and how to understand the cataloging system in a museum.
I love photography.
If I could have dinner with anyone, living or dead, it would be …
… Emily Bronte.
I plan to attend graduate school for archaeology and museum studies.
Most important thing I’ve learned so far:
I’ve learned that even if you plan your life to the smallest detail, everything can change.
