At SLU I was a tour guide for admissions, participated in intramural sports--broomball and basketball-- was an active member of Circle K, a peer tutor in Spanish, and worked in the Spanish writing center. I also participated in St. Lawrence’s study abroad program in Spain (2007-2008).
I chose SLU because of its strong language department and its rich study abroad programs. When I came to St. Lawrence I knew that I wanted to major in Spanish and participate in the St. Lawrence program in Madrid; I was also attracted to the university because of its great education program which allows students to complete a semester of student teaching and graduate as a certified 7-12 teacher even before they enter a graduate program. I speak Spanish fluently and am proficient in German at the beginning level.
