Tabitha, 2013 graduate
French & Spanish

When Tabitha wasn’t scoring points for the varsity women’s basketball team, she spent her time mastering both French and Spanish.  As a French major, Tabitha wasinterested in finding ways to use her French skills outside the classroom, particularly in hands-on ways such as with the Peace Corps.  She genuinely appreciated the interaction with native French speakers on campus: “As a freshman, I met weekly with a 3rd year student from Paris and I really learned a lot from her (and had some fun too!).”
