Andre K. Deckrow – BA, History/Asian Languages and Civilizations, Amherst College

"Once I decided to study Portuguese, I only considered Middlebury. Despite never having formally studied the language, I knew that the Pledge and the top-notch faculty would help me develop a strong foundation for future language study. And I can think of no better place to conjugate verbs than sitting in an Adirondack chair in the verdant hills of Vermont."
