Major: Psychology & Minors in Spanish and Illustration 
How will foreign language impact your future? Learning Spanish will help me communicate with people that I may come across in my field of study. Plus, living in a heavily Spanish-speaking city, I will be able to communicate with those living around me. 
Marywood Memory: One of my favorite memories at Marywood comes from my freshman year during the spring semester. It was about 80 degrees out and my Introduction to World Literature class convinced the professor to let us go outside and read Othello under a giant tree

Sydney Kishbaugh

Class of 2015
Hometown: Nescopeck, PA
Major: Communication Sciences and Disorders & Minor in Spanish
How will foreign language impact your future? As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I will be working with individuals to improve their speech and communication skills. Through this practice, it is possible that I will encounter clients whose primary language is Spanish and are learning to speak English. The knowledge that I have gained and the experiences that I have had with the Spanish language will aid me in working with these clients. I believe that knowing a foreign language will lead to opportunities in my future that I would have otherwise been unlikely to experience.

You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.

How will foreign language impact your future? Foreign language is my future. I am so excited to be able to spread my love of languages to other students. After I master Spanish and French, I am sure I will begin learning even another language.


If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart. -Nelson Mandela

"You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand." - Woodrow Wilson
