Led by a student with advanced skills, students meet in the cafeteria for casual conversation and language practice over dinner at least once a week. Anyone member of the campus community who is interested in using or improving language skills is welcome to join the group.
Internships, Part-time Jobs, Volunteer and Ministry Opportunities
Both through direct communication and by way of the Office of Career Services, the Spanish Section is often made aware of internship or employment opportunities that require proficiency of varying degrees in Spanish. A number of Wheaton students also find occasion to use their Spanish skills in volunteer and ministry positions both in the area and in short-term trips out of the country, such as the annual Spring Break Honduras Trip.
The Violet-Bergquist Scholarship is awarded to an outstanding Junior or Senior student who is a French or Spanish major preparing either to teach or to use French or Spanish in Christian Service. For further information please see either the French or Spanish section leader.
