Back to Alumni Mentors: Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics

My name is Kaleigh Newton and I’m an alumna of Indiana State University’s College of Arts and Sciences. I have a Bachelor’s in Language Studies (2012), and a Master’s in TESL/Linguistics (2017). I studied abroad in Costa Rica for my culminating experience in Spring 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed it. My Spanish improved immensely and I learned how to live in someone else’s culture, which is so eye-opening! In April 2017 I accepted my current position as an English language professor at a private university on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. I have two cats back in the States that I miss, and I’m a tireless advocate for pineapple on pizza.
