Rounding out the year! Proponents of LCTL earn scholarships for their studies

FLP Bookstore student assistant Jude Snowden, Slavic Studies minor (Polish) and Cultural Anthropology major, received the Luczkowski-Habash Polish Award in yesterday’s Dept of Slavic and Eastern European Languages and Cultures awards ceremony. Jude has a passion for less commonly taught languages (LCTL), which have been a focus for study here in the Center for Languages, Literatures and Cultures since its beginnings. Of particular interest is how Jude is applying their studies in LCTL, including: Polish, Irish, Cherokee, Basque, and adding Quechua and Romanian this fall! Outside of their studies, Jude has been keeping busy in the FLP bookstore, handling student textbooks needs, and assisting with communications and social media updates, and working on a podcast with classmate Ekaterina Tikhonyuk (pictured).  They also tutor in Japanese and Polish, and actively participate in Irish language social media threads to keep up with the lastest social movements in the Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking regions of Ireland).
