Highlight of a semester abroad: meeting the president

Associate Prof. Cristina Ortiz Ceberio reports that one of our standout students in the Spanish program, Tanner V. Vodvarka — the 2014 recipient of the program’s Award in Applied Use of the Language — is enjoying a productive semester abroad. Based in Bucamaranga, Colombia, the UW-Green Bay student had occasion recently to meet Juan Manuel Santos, president of the South American nation. Vodvarka’s reaction? A tongue-in-cheek “No big deal,” reports his professor.
