The Cal Lutheran Experience

I think the biggest inspiration I’ve received from a class here was Computer Graphics with Dr. Reinhart. We utilized Linear Algebra tricks to perform some pretty cool graphical manipulations. The math and programming behind them required time and patience, but it was very worth while.

The Spanish Literature and Society course fascinated me because I had the chance to read literature from amazing writers who have shaped the Spanish language to what it is today. That is what was the most impactful for me - learning about all these great writers who interpreted their point of view on life in various ways all while incorporating Latin American history and politics into their works.

My travel seminar Treasures of Peru, taught by Dr. Fiore and Dr. Claussen, was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The opportunity to learn the Peruvian dialect was an indispensable experience in helping me understand Spanish as a living language while refining what I had learned in the classroom at Cal Lutheran. I now have a more holistic view of what it means to be a Spanish learner and how my major intersects with culture and people, going beyond language.
