The Cal Lutheran Experience


It's really exciting that we could have such a big impact on the scientific community just because we're doing something that hasn't been done before.

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.
