Graduates 2015-2016

Matt Longabaugh ’16 Senior Profile: Hispanic Studies

imageMy favorite classes were both of my senior seminars, global issues in poetry, with Teresa Longo, and dictatorship cultures, with Silvia Tandeciarz. I’d like to thank both of them for showing me perspectives I could not have otherwise studied. I also highly enjoyed introduction to philosophy, which I took at the Universidad Nacional de La Plata. I studied in La Plata, Argentina, the spring of 2015 and in Cádiz, Spain, the summer of the most recent FIFA Men’s World Cup in 2014.

After a quick vacation in Europe, where I hope to visit the countries of some of my friends I’ve made here at WM and abroad, I will be interning at the Democratic National Convention, then working for the Bernie campaign if it’s still going. In the meantime I will be applying for a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant Award so that I can return to Argentina to teach english and study at university there.
