A gift that goes all the way to Troy

Back to News

Professor of Classics William Aylward is set to lead a new archaeological expedition of Troy next year.

Thanks to an anonymous unrestricted gift to the College of Letters & Science, Aylward is able to involve students like Geoffrey Ludvik in his exploration of the famous ancient city.

"I've always wanted to be an archaeologist," said Ludvik.

To hear more about why Aylward views student involvement in the exploration as an important part of his mission as an educator and why Ludvik is so grateful to participate, watch the video below.
