Sebastian Teas, '15
May 4, 2015
Sebastian Teas, who will graduate this coming weekend, chose a French and geology double major. The Zanesville native chose to live on campus, but appreciated the campus’s proximity to his hometown.
The French major didn’t come to college with the intention of studying abroad. He says, “I had not considered studying abroad until I came to Muskingum, and even then it was a couple of years before I realized it was something I wanted to do.” Sebastian spent three weeks in Nice, France. “It was great, probably the most exciting thing I've gotten to do while in college,” he says. “It was definitely a learning experience, both in terms of language and interacting with different cultures.”
Besides his experience abroad, Sebastian was also surprised by the opportunities for involvement on campus, and how quickly he grew into leadership roles in some of the organizations he committed to early in his freshman year. He is involved with Circle K and Rotaract, two community service organizations on campus. He adds, “I'm also the male independent representative on student senate, and I've also started my own club, called Affirmity, which is about positive thinking and motivation (becoming more engaged in the work we do in our lives).”
