Alumni Profiles


People's eyes light up when you speak their native language. A door opens and a new relationship is full of more possibilities and connections than before.

 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. 

My German skills have enabled me to do a lot of things that I otherwise couldn't.

Through language study, I have been lucky enough to travel, live and study in-region and forge strong friendships. A strong command of Spanish and Portuguese has also set me apart professionally in a job market where international experience and expertise are increasingly sought-after attributes.

Immerse yourself in the language you want to learn! Don't limit yourself.

I love being able to speak a language that so few people know!

Language classes was are intense yet fun and full-filling.

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.

I can do things personally and professionally that limit others.

I can't emphasize the value of my study abroad experiences enough. It's not just a place I've traveled to, but a place where I've learned and grown, and a place that is now a part of me.
