Some of our students are currently participating in the Summer Language Institute at UMD where they are earning credit for an entire year of Persian study in just two months!
We are excited to announce that Persian Flagship student, Garrett Yocklin, was chosen as a 2019-2020 Philip Merrill Presidential Scholar! Congratulations Garrett for all your achievements this year!
As finals approach, let this poem by Hafez (1315-1390) sooth your worries a bit:
Your lost Joseph will return to Canaan, do not grieve
This house of sorrows will become a garden, do not grieve
Oh grieving heart, you will mend, do not despair
This frenzied mind will return to calm, do not grieve
