Senior Year begins!

Hello! Hola!
It's hard to believe I'm a senior already, the past four years have just flown! I spent last semester abroad in Madrid, Spain and had the time of my life. I believe studying abroad is one of the best--if not the best--thing you can do as an undergraduate student! I learned so much about my self and about this beautiful world we live in, my Spanish improved tremendously, and I met a lot of great people along the way.

My time abroad made me even more excited to come back to Ripon this year and see all of my friends. I'm living in the Senior Apartments this year (the newest building on campus...with A/C!) with three friends who were all abroad last semester too! It's so much fun to cook things we ate while abroad in Spain and Itlay and try new, exotic recipes!

Besides eating well, I also play on the Red Hawk Volleyball team, work as a Spanish Language Lab Assistant, intern in the Admission Office, and participate in the Student Volunteers for the Blue Mountain Project. I also go to class :) This semester I'm taking 16 very interesting credits: Advanced Clinical and Counseling Psychology, Women in Spanish Medieval and Renaissance Literature, Sexualities, and my Psychology Senior Research Seminar.

It's going to be a great year!
