Why did you decide to become a language major?

I have always had a passion for the German language, especially since many of my relatives live in Germany. Also, the German teaching staff here at Ursinus is phenomenal and they are very invested in spreading their passion for the language and culture to their students. 

What has been your most rewarding experience in your language major so far?

I met one of my best friends in German class here at Ursinus.  

What are your plans after Ursinus? 

This upcoming spring I will be studying abroad in Munich, Germany. I am so excited and feel very blessed to have this great opportunity ahead of me! After college I hope to pursue a graduate degree in either speech therapy or industrial hygiene.
