Dr. Kimberly Earles will be leading the "Alumni Story Project" during autumn 2018. The purpose of the project is to gather stories about Scandinavian Studies alums' lives, their incredible adventures and professional achievements. Today's students want to know, "What did you do with Scandinavian Studies?" "How did it help you?" Help us answer their questions! The department will use material from the alumni story project to recruit and retain new students.
Kim says, "I am very excited about the Department of Scandinavian Studies' Alumni Story Project, and look forward to contacting alumni to find out more about their professional lives after obtaining their Scandinavian Studies degrees." Kim will be reaching out to alums during November and December. Please reply to her requests!
