Lauren Hansen Awarded Fulbright

Lauren Hansen (2008, BA German, BS Marketing) has received one of only 140 Fulbright Scholarships. Lauren will leave in early September to teach English at Sebastian Münster Gymnasium in Ingelheim the German state of Rheinland-Pfalz. This is not the first time that Lauren has visited Germany. In the summer of 2007, she interned at a company in Worms, Germany, gaining valuable work experience and a desire to return to Germany after graduation. Lauren is truly an NIU success story. At NIU, she started in FLGE 202 and now is completely fluent in German. She is looking forward to working with students in Germany. She has already been accepted by the Department of German at the University of Illinois Chicago and was awarded the Max Kade Fellowship there. She will defer her admission.
