My name is Lindsay Stone and I am currently a sophomore here at Indiana University. I'm double majoring in Speech and Hearing Sciences and Psychology, and hoping to get a minor in Spanish. My goal is to become a speech-language pathologist which involves working with children who have some sort of communication disorder (stuttering, lisps, etc.) and helping them to become more effective communicators.
I absolutely love being an IU student for a variety of reasons! Our campus is so gorgeous, there are many wonderful ways to get involved with student organizations and around the Bloomington community, and tons of opportunities to learn and have new experiences. With concerts and performances, sports, and other events all year round it's easy to stay active and connected with other people around you.
I am involved with a few different organizations. I've been an actress in our Spanish theatre called VIDA, I am the marketing director for a volunteer group called Movement Exchange at IU, I am starting to volunteer with PALS equine therapy, I'm joining the IU Equestrian Team, and like to participate in various events sponsored by the Hutton Honors College.
I also enjoy going to different football and basketball games. Last year I was at the IU v. Kentucky game and it was so exciting to see such great athleticism in action! Plus the Marching 100 is wonderful and they play songs throughout the game so it's like one big dance party, and who wouldn't enjoy that?
Part-time, I work as a research assistant at the IU Speech Research Laboratory under a psychology professor named Dr. David Pisoni. So far I've learned a lot about research that is applicable to clinical work in my career as well as what goes into creating and running experiments.
It may seem like my plate is overflowing, but I am thrilled to be making the most of my time here at Indiana University. Go Hoosiers!
