For the past two years I have contemplated taking a Chicano Studies class based on Service-Learning in the Chicano/Latino Community. This class is basically built around the idea that there are many limitations within schools in the US/Minnesota that hinder educational opportunities for Latino students.
You would think with 5 years of Spanish under my belt, I would speak Spanish fairly well. However, when you move to a foreign country for 4 months, you better know more than "¿Donde está el baño?"
In addition to being a College of Liberal Arts Student Ambassador, I am also a member of the College of Liberal Arts Student Board. This Student Board is the official undergraduate student government of the College of Liberal Arts and we try to mediate between current undergraduate students and administration.

I am pretty sure this mindset will change once my first midterm exams comes around, but I am currently very excited about the variety classes that I am taking this semester. One of the best parts about the College of Liberal Arts is the flexibility of choosing whatever areas of study interest you.
