Elizabeth Jarcy

Hi, I'm Elizabeth Jarcy, and I'm genuinely terrible at writing about myself. I'm in my second year here at Simmons SLIS in the archives concentration. I live here in Boston (but was born and raised in Texas, yeehaw) and go to the main campus for classes. I work for Simmons graduate nursing admissions and have an internship at the Boston Athenaeum, which is amazing. I love coffee, dogs, goldfish snack crackers, and history. Pretty sure I'm the only active Boston SLIS blogger, so I'll do my best to impart my Beantown wisdom with you all!
