Academic highlights: My favorite part of Gettysburg was the opportunity to study abroad. In the fall of my junior year I travelled to Australia and studied at the University of Wollongong. Taking aboriginal studies classes helped to put my anthroplolgical experience from Gettysburg to use, as I truly learned about another culture. Because of the liberal arts curriculum, I was able to take a myriad of classes that catered to all of my interests. I was able to pursue my interests in language and social sciences, while trying out classes like Fundamentals of Acting, Introduction to Photography, and Chesapeake Bay Ecosystems.
Extracurricular highlights: I helped one of my friends start the Invisible Children club, which raises awareness for child soldiers affected by the ongoing war in Uganda. We were successful in having members of the national organization visit campus each spring, to work with this club. I was also a part of greek life as a member of Chi Omega sorority. This provided my sisters and I with plenty of community service and philanthropy opportunities.
What should new students know? Unbelievable place, great community, good friends!
