Expanding her language skills

Amber Schiessl, MS, is an adjunct instructor within CUWAA’s School of Education and serves as Assistant Director of International Admissions and Program Director of the Student Personnel Administration in Higher Education master’s program at CUW. Her work allows her to continue serving international students and encouraging domestic students to travel.

Through her direct exchange program during her undergraduate experience at UW-Eau Claire, she had the opportunity to explore much of Europe. During her sophomore year, Ms. Schiessl visited Italy, Greece, Spain, Turkey and Ireland with friends from her home base of Winchester, England.

“It was the highlight of my undergraduate experience,” says Schiessl. “I highly recommend taking advantage of these opportunities!”
