Read about this month’s International Studies Student Spotlight. Students were asked to share an influential experience they had that connected to their International Studies major or minor.

“During my time as an International Studies major, I was able to join Sigma Iota Rho. SIR is an international studies honor society that has given me the opportunity to connect with other International Studies students who have similar career aspirations. I have also had the privilege of working for the PICS department and being able to meet the amazing International Studies advisors and professors. I am so lucky PICS has led me to an amazing and driven community!”

Future Plans: “Attend law school and practice human rights or immigration law”
