Student Opportunities and Leadership

After declaring your Spanish major, it is critical that you maintain regular contact with your advisor, your professors, and with the department office staff, all of whom are tremendous resources for you and your college experience.  There are scholarships and new sources of financial aid for which you may qualify. Part-time jobs, internships, service learning and volunteering will play an integral part in your preparation for the future. There is no better way to broaden your global vision, expand your mental horizons and improve your language skills than studying abroad in a country where your language of study is spoken.
