I am a second semester senior from Vermont, with a major in English Writing and minors in Performance and Communication Arts and Native American Studies. I have had a great experience with the Native American Studies department. I was fortunate enough to spend a semester on the Akwesasne Mohawk Reservation up in Massena about an hour away from St. Lawrence. The classes I took that semester ranged from Native American Storytelling to Mohawk Language and Culture 101; it was such an interesting and amazing experience. I felt really enriched by the unique culture on the reservation. It was this special cultural experience that encouraged me to apply to study abroad in Denmark as well. I’m so happy to have had both of these experiences; St. Lawrence really allowed me to step outside of my comfort zone and see the world.
