Right now we have former Soc majors and minors who are in graduate schools, who are elementary, high school, and university teachers, and who work in law enforcement. One runs childrens’ playground activities for Grand Rapids, one is a local arts administrator, another is a local TV news producer, some are traveling with the Peace Corps., one co-ordinates womens’ health centers in Northern California with Americorps.
