Congratulations to our Student Award Recipients

Congratulations

Welcome to our Foreign Languages and Literatures Student Awards Ceremony Website:Professor and Chair, Ruth Gross

My name is Ruth Gross and I am Head of the wonderful department in which we teach14 different languages plus ESL.
We are a department with major concentrations in Arabic, Asian Languages (Chinese, Japanese, Hindi/Urdu), French, German Studies, Spanish, and Teacher Education, but we also have a body of outstanding students in our language programs without majors.
This awards page is a way of recognizing the excellent work that our students in all languages—whether majors, minors, or just interested parties—have accomplished during the past, rather strange, academic year.
In normal times, the Student Awards Ceremony is my favorite event of the year, as it
brings faculty and students (and their families and friends) from all of the languages
that we teach in this department together for the purpose of honoring our very best and
brightest students. It is the time we really become one world. This year things are a bit
different—we can’t meet face-to-face—but we can still joyfully acknowledge your
students who have excelled in your study of one of the many languages and cultures in
our department’s curriculum. To the students on this page—you are the ones we love to
teach—globally aware and ready to engage with different societies and cultures because
you can connect through your facility in the language and culture you have chosen to
acquire. You are the bright future of the global society.
We in Foreign Languages and Literatures hope to see many of you back in our classes in
the fall. In the meantime, congratulations on your outstanding work this year—we, the
faculty of FLL salute you.
