Religious Studies Class of 2014-2015!

The department nominated 2 students—Alexandra Buck and Caroline Crews—for the Dean’s Distinguished Graduates Award, an award that recognizes students who have excelled academically while providing service to their community. Both students were recognized with an Honorable Mention! Buck, a Government, History, and Religious Studies triple major, will be moving to Washington, D.C. in August to pursue a Master’s in International Security at Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service. Her goal is to work for the intelligence community. Crews, who received Departmental Honors in Religious Studies, recently completed her senior honors thesis entitled, “Mostly of the True Word.” A Classics and Religious Studies double major, she will begin a Master’s program in the fall.

Reed McNitzky, a Religious Studies honors student, received the Henry Weiss Award for Achievement in Jewish Studies for his senior honors thesis, “Resurrection and Daniel 12:1-3.” The award comes with an honorarium, and was chosen by a panel of faculty associate with the Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies. After graduation, McNitzky plans to pursue a Master’s of Divinity at Duke University.

Fall 2014 alumnus Israel Dominguez will be pursuing a Master of Arts as a Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Colorado, Boulder in Fall 2015. He will also be working with CU's new Center for Native American and Indigenous Studies. Carrie Surbaugh will be spending the next 11 months participating in the World Race program. RS alumna Callie Cripsin, a Fall 2014 grad, is currently working at a local law firm, and will begin law school at UT Austin in Fall 2015.
