The student experience

Nathan Banks talks about fourth year


The professors strive for real learning, not memorization and regurgitation. There’s an emphasis on critical thinking—analyzing and drawing your own conclusions rather than just accepting what a textbook says.


Christine Cooper talks about fourth year


It’s so exciting to be able to communicate with people in their own language. You can really understand someone when you can understand their language. With language comes a whole new way of thinking.


Kelly Costello talks about third year


You always make friends faster in a language class. The very nature of them requires you to talk to each other. It’s brilliant! And the Spanish professors are wonderful. I’ve never had such fun in the classroom!
