Researching, exploring, and seeking to understand other cultures are essential to anthropology—and a key part of a Notre Dame liberal arts education. Junior Greg Yungtum had the opportunity to do all of these things during a trip to Africa this past summer.
The anthropology and pre-med student spent June and July gaining insight on the struggles and problems of rural Ugandan farmers and studying land development in the area.
“I’m from Iowa, and I have lived in a rural, farm setting my whole life,” Yungtum says, “so this project was an opportunity for me to connect my home life with my academic life at Notre Dame.”
