Alumni Profiles


The unique challenge of language learning and the experience of rediscovering yourself in another tongue always contributed to an unmatched camaraderie between peers.

Language learning makes me feel less cut off from the world.

 I loved the small class sizes. I loved getting to know the faculty early on and having them remember me a year later when I took another class with them. 

Throughout the years, I learned two things about studying a language; the first being learning a new language is very difficult because it forces you to think in a way that no other course does. The second is that no matter how hard you work to improve your language skills there will always be something you don't know. 

Language has enriched my life professionally because I am qualified for many different positions based on my language skills and have the ability to acquire more.

Meeting people and discovering culture through a language will give it a special significance to you.

Studying a language I was able to experience being at a large university but was able to get to know my professors and classmates well as a result of being in a small department.

Studying languages has enriched my life in countless ways.

Never quit studying, your language is a gift for life!

More than the ability to communicate in Spanish that has benefited my career, I know that my Spanish Language major immeasurably improved my ability to communicate in English.
