Congratulations to Larisa G. for being recognized as October's Engaged English Scholar of the Month. Thank you Larisa for your commitment to excellence!
Larisa is a senior Honors English major and French Major. She has been involved with student organizations and community work. Along with her work outside the classroom, Larisa dedicates her time to helping other Undergraduates as one of the Undergraduate Studies office’s Peer Advisors. Larisa is a dedicated student who is currently working on her Suma Cum Laude Thesis.
What does Larisa have to say about getting involved?
"My education has been broadened, strengthened and challenged by my work outside of the classroom. During my work as an ELL teaching assistant at Cedar Riverside, I was forced to consider the value of an English education. It is so important to work both within and outside the walls of academia so that you learn to understand real-world complexities of many different kinds of existence."
What suggestions does she have for students interested in getting involved?
"Students that are interested in getting involved should try to find their niche. Read the English listserv and go to some off campus events that will augment both your academic career and your personal growth. Also, check out some of Eric Daigre’s classes. I got started at Cedar Riverside because of Eric’s 3741 Literacy and American Cultural Diversity course and it was an awesome experience!"
