Have you ever talked to one of our international area studies students? Their feats are enough to make your chest swell with Dragon pride—or your ego deflate when you realize they’ve already accomplished twice as much as the rest of us. Junior Kailey Kluge is no exception: an IAS major with concentrations in business and economics and minors in Russian and political science, she recently received the Boren Scholarship, an award established by Congress to encourage international study in countries critical to U.S. interests. Kluge will spend the 2013-14 academic year working and studying abroad in Russia. Post-graduation, she hopes to work as a Foreign Service officer, eventually becoming a diplomat in Russia or working for the NSA. You know, just the usual.
