Megan Ruter, '15

Department of Modern Languages Outstanding Senior, German
Recognition Year: 

Megan Ruter is an International Business major and German minor. Her love of languages and cultures comes from her upbringing in an Air Force Family.  She has experienced a wide variety of cultures and languages first-hand from a very early age.  Megan has lived in the Republic of Korea and Portugal. Living abroad enabled her to visit many other Asian and European countries.  Thanks to these broad experiences, she pursued learning about other countries and their language and culture. This desire to continue learning encouraged her to take French throughout high school and pursue her degree in International Business.

Because of heritage she decided to add German to her repertoire and she undertook a German minor. While studying German, Megan participated in the Study Abroad Ambassador Program to Munich with Dr. Sturdevant in the summer of 2013. She is a member of the German Honor Society, Delta Phi Alpha.  Megan will graduate in May 2015 and hopes to continue developing her language skills by experiencing other cultures first-hand in an international corporation.
