Trapped at home during quarantine in the spring of 2020, Adrienne Bruce ’22 (CLAS) decided the time was ripe to pick up another language. As soon as her remote classes ended, the linguistics and philosophy major turned to online Korean lessons. “It was something fun to do while I adjusted to quarantine,” she says.
Bruce is putting her pastime to the test this semester at Sogang University in Seoul, South Korea, on a Gilman Scholarship for undergraduate studies abroad from the U.S. State Department. She spoke with us in July.
