Meet a Scholar Who Packs Quite a Punch

Hanover, NH

Adam Levine started boxing just fourteen months ago but, full of ambition he decided to start training for the Vermont Golden Gloves Boxing tournament that starts the last weekend in January.

"I wanted to get back into shape. I wanted to something organized with a coach. Everyone says boxing is the best workout in the world, let's give it a try. I did and I loved it," explains Levine.

Boxing and art is where Adam's two world's collide. Adam has worked at the Hood museum on the Dartmouth College campus the past two years. His long-term goal is a career in museum management and curating.

"As with all sort of mental faculties they all rely on the same things, understanding how people think. A good museum exhibit is going to touch people in certain ways because it appeals to the way they see the world and in a very different way you're using that pattern of recognition in boxing."

The Dartmouth senior was recently awarded a Rhodes scholarship, one of the oldest and most prestigious awards given to American college students. He'll pursue a doctorate of philosophy in classics for two years in Oxford, England.

"The reason I'm so enamored with Oxford is there's a professor there that I'm interested in working with."

The 21 year Born, NY native old is completing a triple major in anthropology, art history, and mathematics and social sciences.
