Jack Wright

I grew up in Grass Valley, CA, and attended Nevada Union High School. After I graduated, I took a gap year abroad through AIFS to Salamanca, Spain. It was such an amazing experience getting to learn about the culture and language. My goal was to gain proficiency in Spanish and to learn more about the world overall. By the time I left, I felt conversationally fluent in Spanish and had met people from all over the world who had given me insight into their cultures. After returning to the US, I came to Chico State to study Business with a GE pathway in Global Development Studies (which I have really enjoyed). Even though I am still not sure what career I want to go into, I do know that I want to continue traveling and learn/practice languages. Now that I am approaching my final year here at Chico State, I am excited to be a part of this like-minded team of people who have the same passion as I do.

Zach Ungerman

Hello! My name is Zach. I am a Communications and Asian Studies Major. I studied abroad in Osaka, Japan fall of 2019. I had an amazing time while abroad and was lucky enough to meet people from all around the world! Now I hope to encourage other students at Chico State to take that leap of faith and just go for it!! During my free time I enjoy playing basketball and spike ball, reading, learning Japanese, doodling, and meeting new people. Go Wildcats!
