Off-Campus Programs Assistant
As the Off-Campus Programs Assistant, Shannon looks forward to helping students figure out which off-campus programs might be right for them. “Looking back at my study abroad opportunities, they were some of the best and yet most challenging times (in a good way!) in my life.” Shannon has a bachelor’s degree in German as well as a master’s degree in Germanic Languages. She speaks German and has dabbled in Swedish, Russian, Spanish and French. Through study abroad participation, she has lived in Germany on five different occasions for a total of two-and-a-half years, both as a student and as an English language teaching assistant.

Lawrence University '22
Summer OCP Assistant
Earl Simons, Jr. is the Summer Off-Campus Programs Assistant. He is a junior majoring in Government and minoring in Japanese language. Earl is interested in exploring how communities, both domestic and international, can interact and come together to influence, encourage development, and foster creativity with one another. This, however, does not dull his passion and love for jazz. Earl has been playing the trumpet for 11 years and continued his passions at Lawrence University by joining the Lawrence University Jazz Ensemble (LUJE), small combos, and receiving private lessons from Professor John Daniel. He has also had the opportunity to play in London as a member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Youth Orchestra, performing and giving master classes to students in primary and secondary schools. As he studies abroad in Japan next academic year, he hopes to explore both music and government as he learns more about the world. He plans to continue playing Jazz in Japan and see what opportunities awaits him there.
