Department of Modern Languages and Literatures


Dear Alumni,

I am so pleased to launch our first alumni website for the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures. A lot of exciting changes have occurred in the department over the last couple of years and we thought the new alumni website and newsletter would be a wonderful way to keep you informed. We also hope that you will be inspired to get in touch with us, since we would love to hear from you! We are curious to find out how your degree from our department has enriched your life after you graduated from CUA. If you have a story to share, a fond memory, or a piece of good advice for our current students, please do get in touch.

I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you again at homecoming or on a visit to CUA.

Claudia Bornholdt, Chair
