Former Presidential Assistants to the LLC
Languages: Spanish, Italian & Russian
(Summer 2010 - Spring 2011)
As a language student and Senior at Muhlenberg, I'm grateful for the opportunity to work as a Presidential Assistant in the Language Learning Center. I've worked at the OIT Student Help Desk on campus throughout my time at Muhlenberg, and I'm happy to bring that experience in technical support to the LLC, along with my experience in Spanish, Italian, and Russian. I enjoy working with the students and faculty here, and I look forward to collaborating with Dr. Iskold in researching new language learning tools and resources.

Joshua returned to Muhlenberg as a Presidential Assistant in the Language Learning Center after graduating Magna Cum Laude with a double major in Accounting and Finance. Joshua came back to Muhlenberg to pursue his 150 semester hour certification towards the CPA exam. His hobbies include swimming, windsurfing, basketball, and golf. Joshua brought experience in website design and a strong interest in technology. Additionally, with an intermediate proficiency in Hebrew, he made efforts to expand the online resources available for language learning.
Languages: Russian, German
(Fall 2005 - Summer 2009)
I graduated from Dieruff High School, Allentown, and am currently majoring in Computer Science. My computer experience is primarily with programming, maintainance, and technical support. Languages interest me a great deal and I have had experience with German in high school and I took Russian here at Muhlenberg. This position in the Language Learning Center allows me the perfect opportunity to find solutions to problems resulting from the combination of language and computers, along with the problems that they pose individually.
(Summer 2002 - Summer 2005)
This position allowed me to develop valuable skills in web design while helping me afford the quality education Muhlenberg has to offer. As a computer science major, I found the work here to be highly relevant to my major and illuminating in general. I enjoyed working with the students and faculty and found both to be very open and friendly. I plan to continue on to graduate school.
