To get an idea of how incoming freshman and parents were feeling about the events and upcoming school year, we interviewed a few people at the Kick-Off.

Dr. Donald C. Johanson's Public Lecture

2007-09-07 by

On Friday, Aug. 24 at 7:30 p.m. in UAA’s Wendy Williamson Auditorium, world-leading Paleoanthropologist Dr. Donald C. Johanson gave a public lecture entitled, “Human Origins: New Discoveries from Africa.”
On a 110-degree day in Ethiopia in 1974, Dr. Johanson made the discovery of a lifetime: a 3.2 million-year old human fossil nicknamed “Lucy,” the oldest and most complete fossilized human remains. Then in 1975 he discovered the fossilized remains of some 13 individuals, believed to be the oldest evidence of human ancestors living in groups. These discoveries, along with Johanson’s subsequent work, have been essential to our understanding of who we are and where we come from.
