Alumna Jennifer Cahee graduated with a Global Studies degree with a concentration on Europe and Human Rights in 2016.
Cahee knew that her curiosity extended well beyond the Castleton border, so she attended Alice Salomon University in Berlin, Germany, for her master’s degree in Intercultural Conflict Management.
During her time on campus, she developed close bonds with a few professors who she says supported and influenced her experience.
“Professor van der Spuy was my advisor and was always willing to meet with me and help me with anything I needed,” she said. “Having a great advisor like her helped me plan my time at Castleton successfully.”
A Vermont native, Cahee says that attending college at the Castleton campus allowed her to stay close to her family. She enjoyed the small class sizes and knew she had always been looking for similar features in colleges. She says it also helped her contribute to volunteer work and giving back to her community.
Looking back on her college days, she has fond memories, such as hosting a snow softball tournament to fundraise for the prevention of child abuse. She believes that the faculty are dedicated to their students and are always willing to assist them.
