Congratulations to December 2022 Graduates!

Congratulations to our December 2022 graduates:

Tia Bunton ’22 (double major in Asian Studies and Music) plans to take time off after graduation to refine her personal and professional goals and begin saving for graduate studies in ethnomusicology.  Tia studied abroad in China as part of her Berea experience.  After years of pandemic-induced isolation, she hopes to travel overseas again before beginning graduate school.

Noah Eubanks ’22 (major in Asian Studies) intends to begin a career as an undergraduate international student adviser.  Having studied abroad in South Korea, Noah’s long-term goals include traveling to Japan.

Heather Rapien ’22 (double major in Asian Studies and Communication) has applied to the JET Program and hopes to hear good news about an English teaching position in Japan sometime in spring 2023.  A member of the Epsilon Alpha Sigma, Lambda Pu Eta, and Phi Kappa Phi honor societies, she has accepted a position with the Guest Relations Association.

The Department of Asian Studies congratulates these graduates and wishes them all the best in the Year of the Water Rabbit and beyond!
