The Cincinnati Museum Center officially opened Maya: The Exhibition last week, and with it a hands-on companion exhibit developed by an interdisciplinary team of Maya experts from the University of Cincinnati College of Arts and Sciences.

In its U.S. premiere, the exhibit features more than 300 original objects—from massive, carved-stone slabs to elaborate jade jewelry to tools and everyday items—that explore Maya culture. From 1000 BC to 1500 AD, Maya civilization spanned the jungles of Mexico, Guatemala and Belize, noted for its innovations in science, agriculture, astronomy and mathematics.

July 20, 2020

When COVID-19 first hit the University of Cincinnati (UC), College of Arts & Sciences (A&S) student Claire Kelley began to struggle. Kelley was in the midst of figuring out what major she wanted to transfer into. “I struggled to make the decision, but after meeting with my advisor, I felt more confident,” says Kelley. She had to declare her new path for school, a double major in biology and neuroscience, from home which was stressful for her. However, her academic advisor walked her through every step of the process and helped her plan for the upcoming year and even into the future all through email and phone calls. “My advisor was so helpful and really helped me through the difficult time,” says Kelley.
