Indiana Beta’s Chase Crowe has earned a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship (ETA) to Germany.
Brother Crowe who majored in German at Wabash College and minored in religion played four seasons of club rugby, including for the 2018 squad that posted a 16-2-1 record. He took an immersion trip to Tübingen, Germany, in 2016 before studying abroad in Marburg, Germany in 2017. Since graduating from Wabash, Crowe participated in a Denver, Colorado based fellowship – Denver Math Fellows – and provided math instruction at the Denver Center for 21st Century Scholars and Northfield High School.
“I’m going to focus on enjoying my time and Germany and doing the best work I possibly can during my Fulbright experience,” said Crowe, a native of West Lafayette, Indiana. “I’m hoping to ignite my passion as an educator abroad before possibly pursuing a life teaching German literature as a professor.”
Crowe has yet to receive his assignment, as his Fulbright experience is scheduled to begin in January 2021.
“Chase really came into his own during his time at Wabash, found his voice and a stronger sense of confidence and purpose,” said Brian Tucker, Professor of German. “He’s devoted himself since graduation to education, and the German faculty are proud that he will be sharing his talent and experience with students in Germany.”
