Ron LeonhardtStudent Advisory Board

Major: History and International Politics

I am from Rockford, Illinois and I have four brothers and sisters. I also have a chocolate lab named Koda and the 2Pac discography. I recently returned from spending three months in Phnom Penh, Cambodia where I was taking language classes and conducting research on the Khmer Krom, an ethnic minority group located around the Mekong river. Once I graduate from NIU, I plan to attend graduate school to pursue a PhD in History.
