Ruth Wyckoff is a senior double majoring in International and Global Studies and History, with minors in Hispanic Studies and Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies. She returned to her hometown in New Jersey this spring after an incredible, though truncated, study abroad semester in Jordan, where she learned about Refugees, Health, and Humanitarian Action. She is a Waltham Group Coordinator with Prospect Hill Kids' Club, and this fall is starting as a Community Engagement Ambassador for the Department of Community Service. She loves hiking, knitting, and most of all talking, so please don't hesitate to email her with any questions about classes, minoring in IMES, studying abroad, or to make a new friend!
