Emma Budwig (Middle School Teacher of Spanish, San Francisco Friends School) speaks Spanish as her primary language at home.
But at Middlebury, she discovered that there's more to language learning than speaking the language. "The professors here, from all over the world, are fabulous, and the cocurricular activities, from movies to concerts and roundtable discussions, provide enrichment far beyond the classroom." Emma has also discovered how graduate work at Middlebury can attract the attention of prospective employers. "I am positive that having a Middlebury degree on my résumé was the reason that I was chosen for an interview," she says. "This fall, I'll be moving out to San Francisco to start my new job."
