Elena Sobrino, Anthropology '15

Elena is a PhD candidate at MIT in the History, Anthropology, Science, Technology, and Society program. When asked about her experience with the SACJ department at UM-Flint, Elena said, "I value the teaching, expertise, and mentorship of the department's faculty the most. Being in smaller classes, and having direct access to faculty, makes such a difference in learning course material and finding ways to develop your own interests and projects alongside structured courses and research."

Ryan Ribner, Criminal Justice '02

Ryan is a special agent with Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). HSI is responsible for investigating a wide range of domestic and international activities arising from the illegal movement of people and goods into, within, and out of the United States.
