NOVA Historic Preservation Spring Open House, April 22!

Are you fascinated by museums but have always wanted to find out more about how they operate behind the scenes? Every time you see a building that was built hundreds of years ago, do you love to imagine what life must have been like for the people who first lived there?    Do you like digging in the dirt for nifty old things?  Do you simply have a passion for the past that goes far beyond reading books and writing papers?

Then come and find out what NOVA’s Historic Preservation Program is all about!

  • Get the jump on the registration rush as program faculty will talk about our upcoming internship opportunities and course offerings in preservation, museum studies and archaeology for the Summer and Fall 2013 semesters.
  • Find out how to turn your love of the past into an actual job as Lori Kimball, the Director of Education at historic Oatlands Plantation and a NOVA Historic Preservation Program graduate, discusses how her experience in the program helped her get a foot in the door as a museum professional.
  • Shamelessly mooch off of our fabulous munchies!

When: 6:45pm on Monday, April 22

Where: NOVA’s Loudoun Campus, LC-313
