Amazing Student: Nicholas Twiner

NicholasTwiner_0.jpgLinguistics, Classical Languages, and Classical Culture major Nicholas Twiner has discovered his opportunities to get involved, participate in research and explore his passions:

Academically, the University of Georgia has empowered me to achieve more than I thought I would. Research through the Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities has been such an important part of my academic career. It has pushed me to understand and explore the field of linguistics more thoroughly—to go beyond the classroom and understand what research looks like, how to do it, and what the pressing questions are in my field. Through both excellent mentoring and the help of the CURO assistantship, I have had the opportunity to share my work at conferences across the country—literally from coast to coast. I traveled to California this past winter to share my work in Berkley, and went to a regional linguistics conference in Charleston last spring break. I could not have done this without my incredible mentors and professors who have pushed me and my research every step of the way.

Read the whole profile for another example of a great university experience. UGA has multiple points of pride, but perhaps none more powerful than essential student experiences that empower people to achieve beyond their expectations.
