Alumni Profiles


My Spanish classes seemed more engaging than my non-language courses —I was always excited to go and could always count on my professors being excited as well.

My time in Spain also allowed me to develop my own interests and come to appreciate what I love and want to be doing with my life. 

My professors were so good...they knew me, challenged me, nurtured me.

Learning German has changed my life forever.

Being able to travel to and live in a foreign country without having to rely on English is a very proud and empowering experience.

Learning Kazakh was an entirely new experience, as it brought me out of my comfort zone and exposed me to an entirely new culture with vastly different beliefs, traditions and customs.

Learning about Scandinavian culture and politics has really shaped my views on the world—and I owe my marriage to my Norwegian class! It doesn't get much better than that.

You never know where your language will lead you.

I've found studying Thai language to be quite intrinsically rewarding. Truthfully, the whole process has been just a lot of fun. 

Languages have completely changed the course of my life and the way I view the world in ways I never could have predicted.
