Casey Greenleaf

Cultural Anthropology

Graduated in 2020

Casey Greenleaf grew up in Brattleboro, Vermont. She transferred to Northeastern from Skidmore College during her second-year; although she enjoyed the small liberal arts school environment, she believed Northeastern would provide her the freedom to mix and match courses and create the educational experience she was looking for. Casey has a lot of interests and didn’t always plan to study Cultural Anthropology. She started at NU as an Environmental Science major, switched to Political Science, and switched again to English. She finally settled on Cultural Anthropology because she found that it addressed the core desire at the root of all her interests—understanding the human condition.

Casey’s Path

“It was the intermodality of Northeastern that was really attractive to me. When I came here, that idea was a very exciting thing for me: the potential  that I could do so much, that there were so many opportunities open for me like co-ops and studying abroad. That idea ended up being very true — as true as I thought it would be, it was even truer.”
