Carrollton Resident Receives National Fellowship
MANCHESTER, N.H. (September 30, 2020) – Saint Anselm College graduate Claire Ridley of Carrollton, Texas, was awarded a national fellowship for graduate studies from Delta Epsilon Sigma, the national scholastic honor society for students, faculty, and alumni of colleges and universities with a Catholic tradition.
Ridley, who majored in classical archaeology and classics with minors in history and art history, was active on campus as treasurer of both the Classics Society and jazz band, and was also a member of the Core Council. She studied abroad for a semester in Orvieto, Italy and spent three summers on the archaeological dig there.
Ridley chose Saint Anselm College for its liberal arts education, smaller class size and sense of community. “The archaeology major was exactly what I wanted and there was a dig I could participate in that was run by Saint Anselm faculty, which was a great opportunity,” said Ridley.
This fall she will be attending the University of Texas at Austin to earn a Master of Science in Information Studies.
