Meet the Seniors

Sure, they’re thrilled to graduate. But where are they going? Where have they been? Amherst  interviewed more than two dozen members of the Class of ’08—men and women who’ve studied in Siberia, Greece, India; who’ve worked for record labels, hospitals, senators; who’ve joined the U.S. Navy and the Peace Corps. Here are 15 of their stories.

It’s 10 p.m. on a Wednesday, and I’ve settled into a seat in the darkened theater in the basement of Keefe Campus Center. I’m clutching a large decaf from Schwemm’s coffeehouse and listening to the whispers of the students in the audience. We’re about to watch the new episode of Lost projected onto the big screen.

I love my job.
