Jackson Strike

My name is Jackson Strike and I'm a junior from Mill Valley, California. I’m currently a Spanish major with a minor in Psychology and I love being able to study two completely different subjects.  I began my time at USC studying theatre and have tried on a number of different majors since then. But after spending the summer studying abroad in Madrid, I've found a home in the USC Dornsife Spanish department.  During my time in Madrid, I took two classes at a historic university in Salamanca, lived with a host family in the Chamberí neighborhood of Madrid, and travelled all the way from Sevilla to Barcelona.  This trip allowed me not only to see two opposite ends of the country but also to visit nine completely new countries!  I consider the overseas studies program to be one of the highlights of the Spanish major and I hope to study abroad again in Buenos Aires this spring.  On campus, I am a board member of Musical Theatre Repertory, a student organization that produces two to three shows each year.  Off campus, I can be found working at the Carnation Café on Main Street in Disneyland.
