#BilingualBroncos- Are you looking for a way to keep up with your language skills over the summer? Check out the new Idaho World Languages Discord created by One Stone student, Declynn Brian.

Here's a message from Declynn about the project:
"Hello! I'm a student at One Stone about to graduate and go on to Reed College. This was a fun project I worked on my senior year to connect world language learners across Idaho. I hope you will be able to find some new friends and develop a passion for language learning."

Note: This server is not endorsed, affiliated by/with or monitored by One Stone or Boise State University. Declynn asks that the group members be limited to high school and college students studying a language in the state of Idaho.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch, Chloe!

𝗠𝗘𝗘𝗧 𝗖𝗟𝗔𝗦𝗦 𝗢𝗙 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟬 𝗖𝗢𝗠𝗠𝗘𝗡𝗖𝗘𝗠𝗘𝗡𝗧 𝗦𝗣𝗘𝗔𝗞𝗘𝗥 𝗖𝗛𝗟𝗢𝗘 𝗣𝗔𝗠𝗣𝗨𝗦𝗛

Chloe Pampush, from Tillamook, Oregon, will be the student speaker at a special commencement ceremony to honor graduates who could not attend in-person celebrations due to the global pandemic. Pampush graduated in 2020 with a bachelor of fine arts degree in graphic design and a minor in German.

“I am excited to return to campus for this,” Pampush said. “It is great to have an opportunity to gather with all my classmates and officially celebrate our achievements.”

When she first arrived at Boise State, Pampush was not exactly sure what path she would pursue, but that was one of the features that attracted her to the university in the first place.

“Boise State had a broad variety of majors so I knew I would have options,” she said.

Pampush initially pursued economics, but an interest in art led her to enter the graphic design program. She was also able to expand her studies to include a minor in German, adding to the knowledge of the language she gained after studying abroad in Austria.

In both of these areas of study, Pampush pursued leadership and mentorship roles. She worked in the Boise State Department of World Languages Resource Center helping students practice their speaking and conversation skills, and was involved in the Pathways Project which develops open educational resources (OER) for Idaho’s K-16 language teachers and students.

“When it came to capitalizing on the opportunities available to our Broncos, Chloe clearly made the most of her time at Boise State,” said Amber Hoye, director of the World Languages Resource Center. “Many students benefited from her work on-campus and she created lasting, impactful projects for the university and teaching materials used by language instructors in Idaho and across the country.”

As an officer in the Student Association of Graphic Arts she focussed the organization on better preparing interested students to succeed in the intensive program.

“I really tried to help the lower-division students gain confidence in themselves and be prepared for what the upper-division courses demand,” Pampush said.

These extracurricular activities helped Pampush make connections to students and faculty that benefited her on and off campus.

“Amber Hoye was very supportive, empowered us to work independently and allowed me to grow into leadership and management roles,” Pampush said. “And in graphic design, Brian Wiley was a tremendous resource as our world shifted in March with the pivot to online learning. He was always so supportive and worked really hard to make COVD times as normal as possible. He also helped me a lot as I prepared to enter the design world after graduation.”

Pampush has remained in Boise since graduation and was recently promoted to project manager at a local digital design agency.

“Chloe is one of the most exceptional students that I’ve had in my classroom since joining Boise State and it’d be hard to overstate the contributions that she made to our program and community during her time here,” Brian Wiley, associate professor of graphic design said. “She was a curious, enthusiastic, and engaged student, and her comfort with both the academic and practical side of design is not often seen at the undergraduate level.”

Though her experience was disrupted by COVID, and her first commencement was virtual, Pampush fondly remembers her time at Boise State.

“It was the perfect college experience,” she recalls. “The campus is a good size, it’s close to downtown, the grounds are beautiful, there’s an iconic sporting legacy and a vibrant student life. Boise State played a huge role in making me who I am today and I’m grateful for the opportunity to represent my class at commencement.”

Go Global with a Language Degree!

The study of languages gives students a sound foundation in the liberal arts. Graduates with language backgrounds possess a resource for continuing intellectual growth and personal fulfillment, a passport for moving easily within the world community and its diverse cultures, and a practical tool for earning a living. Programs in the Department of World Languages concentrate on the acquisition of language and knowledge of the cultures that the language expresses.

The department offers baccalaureate degrees and minors in French, German, and Spanish; minors in American Sign Language, Arabic Studies, Basque Studies, Chinese Studies, Japanese Studies, Latin American and Latino/a Studies, Latin, as well as language instruction in Bosnian, Korean and Portuguese.

Special encouragement is given to students who wish to pursue a minor emphasis in a world language to support a major taken outside the department. With the changing population of the United States and the growing interdependence of the international community, career opportunities are expanding rapidly for graduates who know a second language. Second language competency has become highly desirable in teaching, government, social services, diplomacy, law, medicine, mass communications, science, technology, international trade, and marketing. The programs in world languages have the latitude and flexibility to fit nearly any career goal.

The Department of World Languages encourages students who wish to acquire proficiency at a “professional” or “near-native” level to spend time in a region whose language they are studying. Programs available through the Office of International Learning Opportunities give students a chance to master a language and learn more about culture and customs, often while studying at foreign universities and living with local families.
