Veronica Inveen, a transfer student from Tacoma Community College, was featured in UW’s Spring 2016 Transfer Newsletter where she talks about her decision to major in International Studies and minor in Southeast Asian Studies at the Jackson School.

“In high school I studied abroad in Thailand for a year so coming into college I knew I wanted to stay involved in the region and eventually move back!” she said.

Veronica received a Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) award for the summer to study intensive Thai in Bangkok. 

Veronica says one class she would recommend to future Jackson School (JSIS) majors would be JSIS 265: “The Vietnam Wars” taught by Jackson School Professor Christoph Giebel.

“It was the most eye-opening and intriguing class (let alone history class!) that I’ve ever taken. Professor Giebel is extremely passionate and teaches it as if he is telling a story. I recommend everyone take it, regardless of your major!”.
