Testimonials

Dr. Fabian Balmori

Seeing my students make connections, in regards to language or culture, is the most rewarding part of my job. I hope that any class I teach does something to help students gain a new perspective on the way they communicate and their role within a larger global community.

Dominique Howard '17

My interest in language has really been prominent my entire life. Having a Puerto Rican mother, I’ve been surrounded by it. Beginning in high school, though, I really started becoming fond of the Hispanic/Latin American culture beyond just my home life. I knew then that I needed to add Spanish as an area of study in college.
