Global Education

Ellie Groenendyk '16 describes her time studying abroad in Spain, including joining a Spanish kayaking club.

"I’ve always liked studying languages and I love that I get the opportunity to speak in Spanish every day. The professors in my major are great, too. There have been several times when I’ve met with them to discuss my plans after graduation and they’re always willing to give me advice and talk about their experience with continuing their Spanish education after college."
