Fall 2016 capstone presentations

By Greg Rohlf

Pacific seniors present

On Wednesday, December 7th, the History department’s class of 2017 will be presenting their Capstone research projects in the Library Community room at 5:30 p.m.

This is the department’s fourteenth group of students to tackle a semester-long independent research project.  I’m very proud of the enterprising and thoughtful research they have done.

From left to right: Alyssa A. Rodriguez, Julian Galves, Gisella Maltos, and Tyler Reardon

Julian Galves will be speaking on the Filipino experience in Stockton and California; Gissella Maltos will be speaking on the women athletes of the 1932 Olympic games hosted at Los Angeles; Tyler Reardon’s project is based on the experiences of a regiment of New Mexico-based soldiers in the Bataan Death March, including archival sources written by his grandfather; and Alyssa Rodriguez’s project examines the origins of Czechoslovakia’s Velvet Revolution in 1989.

Current students, alums, parents, and friends are warmly encouraged to attend.  Please join us for the conversation about our past and for a celebration of our students’ work!
