Senior Yue Huang (COM’11) traveled from her home in Beijing to Boston University, and quickly learned that although she knew English, her American slang could use some work. She didn’t stop there — using her second language to learn her third (Spanish), and eventually her fourth (French). In Points of Departure, Huang talks about growing up in the newsroom, and how languages help her break down barriers to communicate as a journalist:

Now that I’m back from Spring Break, I’m faced with a harsh reality check: commencement is just around the corner. In fact, exactly 2 months from today we will be filling onto Nickerson Field in those gorgeous red gowns to collect the most important piece of paper we have ever earned. If the very thought of donning the traditional tasseled hat has you breaking out into a cold sweat, or if you are simply confused as to what is happening that weekend, fear not because the Dean of Students office has you covered. The Seniors website has helpful links to the commencement page, relevant articles for soon-to-be grads and information about the class gift and the all important Senior Week. So take a deep breath and take a look around; you wont want to miss out.
