Words of Wisdom from an International Studies Grad

News, Newsletter

Written by Taylor Langston, ‘15

If I had to give any advice to freshman for getting the most out of the IS program, taylor-langstonI’d first start by telling them something that probably applies to freshman regardless of their major. That is, don’t be afraid to take classes that might seem intimidating whether in their content or topic. Your time at Adelphi is a time to push yourself academically and without reservation, and, despite popular thought, the professors are on your side. They are there to challenge you, foster your growth as a student and active citizen and most of all they will be there when you are “stuck,” for lack of a better word. As an IS student at Adelphi, it is best to take initiative (in the classroom and elsewhere), share your opinions and ideas in a productive and kind way, and explore the International Studies program for all it has to offer you.

Thanks, Taylor! We couldn’t agree more! –Ed.
