LRC Student Staff Member: Rachel Wigmore

Guten tag! My name is Rachel Wigmore and I’m a new student staff member at the Language Resource Center. I’m a Biology major (hoping to add a German minor soon) originally from Burlington, New Jersey. In addition to working at the LRC, I’m involved in bacteriophage research with Professor Delesalle and am the secretary of German club (our first meeting is Tuesday, Sept. 15th at 4pm in the German lounge! If you have any questions concerning German club you can email me at wigmra01@gettysburg.edu).

If you hadn’t already guessed, my main language of study is German, but I am very interested in learning as much as I can about cultures and languages I’m less familiar with. I plan to study abroad for a semester in Berlin in my junior year and eventually become a biological researcher or a medical/clinical lab technologist. In addition to biology and german, I enjoy reading, writing, and petting all the adorable dogs we have on campus. I hope to visit as many landmarks and cities listed in a book I received one Christmas, 1000 Places To See Befre You Die, as I can.
