Sydney Schumacher and Jordan Pugh, juniors at Indiana University East and friends since high school, took the trip of a lifetime over the 2015-2016 winter break. The two accompanied Egyptologist and IU East Professor of History Eugene Cruz-Uribe to Egypt to study ancient Egyptian burial practices first-hand. The trip was a requirement for their Undergraduate Readings in History Independent Studies class.
