Ashley Koenig, a junior studying art history and photography, participated in an archaeological excavation last summer in Italy’s Umbria region. Excavating medieval and Roman period artifacts, including skeletons, Koenig gained valuable experience in the recovery of ancient art.

Koenig also received a Friends of the Arts grant for her upcoming exhibition, Living His Story, at Milner Library. The exhibition will be shown in spring 2014 and include photographic portraits and interviews with World War II veterans.
