Jocelyn Unzicker ‘12; Foreign Languages major (Russian & German) 

imageJocelyn(Joss)Unzicker, a Foreign Languages major (Russian/German) came to Lewis & Clark from here in Portland. She studied German in Munich, Germany, for 3 years while in high school, and by the end of her freshman year she declared Foreign Languages as her major, with Russian being a primary language. Joss spent the 2011 fall semester in Vladivostok, studying Russian and the history and current direction of the Russian Far East, teaching business English to a group of students pursuing post graduate degrees, and memorizing/reciting Russian poetry at various historical local events. After her return from the overseas study, Joss began to work as a language assistant who was responsible for preparing and conducting a weekly conversation group for Russian 101-102 students. She was a very popular and well-liked assistant, in addition to her SAAB tutoring for Russian & German.

Joss contributed to the larger Lewis and Clark community by taking an active role as a Resident Advisor for on-campus communities in her Sophomore and Junior years. She was also an avid attendee and organizer for both Russian and German Club events which led her to participate and help in the annual International Fair performances each year.

After her graduation from Lewis & Clark, Joss began working at
SurveyMonkey in Portland as a support representative for English and German speaking customers. She ultimately plans on going to graduate school to pursue a degree that enables her to travel, research, and live abroad.
