Hi!  My name is Dan Tooman, and I would like to welcome you to the Campus Archaeology Program  intern blog. I will be the first of several undergrads to post my campus archaeology experiences on this site.  This is my first post, however, I have already been working with the program for several weeks.  So far, I have greatly enjoyed every minute of it.  I am entering my senior year as an anthropology major with a specialization in environmental studies, however, I spent my first two years at MSU studying landscape architecture.  In the LA program I acquired skills in drafting and design, horticulture, and soil sciences.  My diverse undergrad experience has provided me with a unique skill set that I believe will aid in my work as in intern for CAP.  Making the decision to change my major was a difficult one, but it has made all the difference.  Anthropology and more specifically, archaeology, have been my life long love.  From the first anthropology class, I knew without a doubt that I had made the right choice.  It took me a while to realize that maybe there was something more to all those hours that I’ve spent searching for old bottles, arrowheads, and other traces of past human influence.  I look forward to a down and dirty summer breaking ground.    

Check back for weekly updates about everything campus archaeology!
