Hello there! My name is Lindsay Stone, I'm from Indianapolis, and I am currently a freshman here at Indiana University. I am majoring in Speech and Hearing Science as well as Psychology, and hope to earn a minor in Spanish. Someday, I hope to become a Speech-Language Pathologist, which means I would be working with children who have communication disorders (e.g. stuttering, lisps, etc.) and helping them to communicate more effectively.
I love, love, LOVE being a student here at IU! We have such a beautiful campus, tons of amazing activities and opportunities, and I enjoy all of my classes and professors! Even though this is only my first year of college life, I've had a lot of wonderful experiences getting involved with different student organizations. In the fall, I participated as an actor in the Spanish theater group called VIDA, went to different events sponsored by the Hutton Honors College, and over winter break I went on a service trip to Panama (yes, the country) with a little group called Movement Exchange. Needless to say, it's been a busy, yet rewarding year.
This semester I am working as an Undergraduate Research assistant in the Speech Research Lab. It's through the department of Psycholinguistics and run by a brilliant professor, Dr. David Pisoni. This work is helping me learn a lot about research and my field of interest, and I'm excited to see where it takes me!
Phew! Seems like a lot so far, especially since this is just my introduction, but I definitely enjoy being involved on campus. Surprisingly, I still manage to find time to study (I mean, that's why we're all here, isn't it?), hang out with friends, cheer on the basketball team, and occasionally take time to relax! Looking forward to sharing more in the future!
