The new semester has begun, and we are featuring profiles of our multilingual and multitalented student staff members.
Anoush Aghababian is a junior at Gettysburg College, currently pursuing a Classical Studies major with a double minor in Anthropology and Studio Art. She is fluent in Japanese, and has studied both Ancient Greek and Latin extensively. She also has learned conversational Macedonian, and she hopes to add Twi to this list of languages after the spring of 2015.
Anoush loves spending time abroad. She lived in Japan for five years until she moved back to Central Jersey in 2007, she visited Macedonia on an archaeological dig during the summer of 2013, she studied abroad in Rome during the spring of 2014 (she also visited Paris for a week!), and she plans on studying in Ghana during the spring of 2015.
On campus, Anoush is involved in the Bullets Marching Band, Phi Sigma Iota, the national honor society for classical studies, and the PLA program as the Ancient Greek assistant. She also works at the Classics and History Department Office, and is a member of the LRC staff.
In her spare time, Anoush enjoys playing the piano (Brahms, Chopin, and Debussy are her favorites), running, eating french fries, sleeping, and watching Sunny.
