Millie Noury (Class of 2021) is Hispanic Studies’ Student Focus for November of 2019.
An accomplished major in Spanish and Elementary Education, with a minor in Linguistics, Ms. Noury has contributed to the department and wider institution alike in her roles as a veteran Spanish tutor for the Center for Student Learning, Treasurer of Best Buddies Inclusivity Club and as a Cougar Excursion Facilitator. In addition, Millie has distinguished herself by being granted membership in the prestigious Sigma Delta Pi Spanish Honors Society. For all this –and more– Hispanic Studies is proud to have Ms. Millie Noury among its ranks.
In her own words:
“Nothing sounds more pleasing to me than the Spanish language. I love the way it rolls off the tongue and I enjoy practicing and speaking with my peers, department faculty, and other speakers as much as possible. It is a skill I am proud to have and that I truly enjoy cultivating. I plan to use the Spanish that I am learning at CofC in the classroom, as I’d like to teach bilingual children one day. The Hispanic Studies Department makes me feel comfortable as I continue to develop my language skills and they are always willing to help if I have questions. The department feels so close-knit and has a true sense of community. The department really values me as a student and as a learner and I am very proud to be a part of something this great!”
