    Madeleine Scott '20

    Major:  Biology and French

    "I grew up moving around and the wanderlust stuck - until I made Arkansas my home! I've spoken French for almost ten years, but through the Odyssey program, Hendrix gave me the chance to apply my language skills professionally in a biomedical research lab in France. In addition to the laboratory techniques I learned while there, I was able to establish professional connections, perfect my French, and even co-author a paper!"
