Sabreena Croteau was named one of Eastern’s two 2016 Barnard Scholars — an annual award given to only 12 students from Connecticut’s four state universities (Central, Eastern, Southern and Western). Croteau’s impressive research projects — several of which she has presented at national conferences — and travels abroad helped earn her the distinction. From the Middle East to France to Honduras, Croteau says of traveling, “When you go out of your comfort zone and go somewhere that counters your worldview, your mind opens and you grow as a person.” Croteau aspires to attend graduate school to study international relations and comparative politics in pursuit of a career in the U.S. Foreign Service.
