Following our Path: Putting together the Exhibit video

The "Following our Path" exhibit has been up at the Carney Gallery of the Fine Arts Center for a little over a month now, but have you wondered how the museum studies practicum students actually went about installing all of that material? (Of course you have!). Thanks to museum studies student JP Harwick, we have a short documentary about the process of installing "Following our Path". Just click on the link and enjoy!

Welcome Ana!

Ana is the newest addition to the History, World Languages, and Cultural Heritage Department family. As our assistant she will be provide weekly office support to faculty and students.  Welcome Ana!  We look forward to working with you this semester.
My name is Ana Fernanda Hidalgo. I am eighteen years old and a freshman at Regis College. I have one sister, Gabriela. She is twenty two years old and a Boston College graduate. My parents are from Nicaragua and I am very proud of my heritage. I grew up in Nicaragua but was born in Miami, Florida. I genuinely think that the fact that I was raised in a third world country highly influenced my view on life as a whole. In other words, I know what it is like to see young kids asking for money at stop lights, I know that I am privileged to be receiving an education at this institution. When it comes to entertainment, I've always had a passion for reading and writing. Because of this, I am double majoring in English and Communications and minoring in Spanish. My dream job is to be a journalist, to inform the general public of current events and how they might be able to help. The reason I moved to Massachusetts is because I wanted a whole new experience as far as college goes. I wanted to move away from my hometown in order to become independent and grow as a person. As the department's assistant, I hope to get to know everyone at a personal level and help each faculty member to the best of my ability.
