Tony Terragna earned his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science at the University of Connecticut in 2012. After pursuing a strong interest in diversified studies throughout his academic career, the primary focus in International Studies, French, and History reshaped Tony’s understanding for the world around him.
Tony’s cultural awareness and linguistic enthusiasm developed after pursuing his studies in foreign languages. On his high school transcript, Tony graduated from East Hartford High School with Spanish 4 Honors, French 3 Honors, and Mandarin Chinese I. The University of Connecticut enticed his diversified interests by pursuing an enrollment in Elementary Arabic and Chinese foreign language courses. Tony pursued a French minor with intermediate to advanced instructed courses in French. A four year commitment with the French Club greatly rewarded him with a trip to Montreal in 2010. Mr. Tom Terragna, his father, helped organize the trip with Bingo T’s Bus Tours, LLC. The family bus touring business is as old as Tony!
Extracurricular activities helped expand Tony’s interests during his collegiate years. Tony participated in the French and Human Rights Film Series to engage in inspirational documentaries and educational screenings. As an undergraduate, the University of Connecticut American English Language Institute (UCAELI) was a rewarding experience over the summer. Tony pursued his cultural and linguistic enthusiasm as a Conversation Partner volunteer committed to the enrichment and exchange of interpersonal communication in English with native Mandarin, Arabic, Korean, and European speakers.
