Jen Lazuta '07 is no stranger to travel. From backpacking through Europe and South America to visiting over a dozen African countries, including Burkina Faso, where she was a Peace Corps volunteer for four years, Lazuta has seen the world.
The economics and English double-major says she got the travel bug from her experiences studying abroad through Gettysburg College. She spent a semester at Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa during her junior year.
“When I got back to the U.S. after that semester abroad, I pretty much knew I would return to Africa in some capacity,” Lazuta said. “On some level, the decision to go abroad really changed the whole course of my life.”
