Elisabet Asplund Pietz

Credentials: B.S. with Honors in the Liberal Arts | Major: Spanish | Certificate: LGBTQ+ Studies

My undergraduate experience would have been drastically different without the L&S Honors program. I particularly want to thank David Danaher and Marwa Shalaby for teaching extraordinary Honors-only courses. Their courses provided me with the space to question my own beliefs, develop a stronger understanding of the world, and push my mind to the limit. I will be attending UW-La Crosse as a member of their Doctor of Physical Therapy class of 2024, and hope to eventually become a bilingual, culturally competent, actively anti-racist physical therapist. Participating in the Honors Program here at UW-Madison has been a crucial step of my journey.
