||Senior profile: Sarah Cable
RELEASED: Oct. 21, 2004
Hometown: Chattanooga, Tenn.
Major: International studies (Spanish minor)
Study Abroad: Vietnam (CentreTerm 2003); Mexico (fall 2003); and Cameroon (CentreTerm 2004).
On her study abroad experiences: "I've always loved to travel, and this is one of the reasons I chose to come to Centre. I didn't know at the time that I'd be able to go on so many trips, but I knew that Centre would give me the opportunity. Visiting Vietnam, Mexico and Cameroon with such knowledgeable professors has greatly enhanced my Centre education because I've been able to apply my experiences abroad to my international studies courses on campus. I've also developed great friendships with other Centre students throughout my travels."
Extracurricular activities: Colonel Corps member (admission tour guide); freshman orientation assistant; teacher of English as a second language at Danville High School; Commencement Junior Marshal; and member of Delta Delta Delta sorority.
What are you reading? "It's hard finding a spare moment, but I'm reading The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It was my favorite book in high school English class, and I enjoy re-reading it."
Future plans: "I've decided to take a year off before applying to graduate school for international affairs. Getting some job experience will enable me to earn some money and narrow down my interests before beginning graduate school."
What others say about Sarah: "Sarah is a bright and open-minded student with a wonderful sense of adventure as she visited three continents in one year," says Lori Hartmann-Mahmud, assistant professor of international studies at Centre. "Sarah is the classic example of a traveleras opposed to a touristwho is sincerely interested in and curious about the world. During our CentreTerm trip to Cameroon, she maintained a sense of humor and a high degree of flexibility."
Quotable: "My time at Centre has been very fulfilling. The personal attention I've received from the professors and staff has greatly enhanced my academic experience, and my time abroad has helped me narrow my career interests. I've also made some amazing friendships that will last long after graduation. Through Centre, I've discovered my true passions and the resources to pursue them."
