Alumni Spotlight

Rashida Aluko-Roberts ’15

Majors: Africana Studies, International Affairs

Rashida came to Gettysburg because of its strong academic reputation and the many opportunities available for students outside of the classroom. She double-majored in Africana Studies and International Affairs. Currently an Underwriter Trainee for an insurance company, Rashida’s majors set the foundation for her ability to think critically and acting proactively when trying to find solutions to problems. Her advice to current students: You might have to take a different road than you first planned on. Never lose sight of what’s important to you, but be flexible and open to different opportunities.
