John Ryan Isaacson, Honors College Senior, Selected for Fulbright ETA to Germany
John Ryan Isaacson, a senior international studies major from Muleshoe, Texas, has been selected to receive a prestigious Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship (ETA) to Germany. Isaacson is among three Fulbright recipients this spring and Baylor’s 53rd Fulbright recipient since 2001.

“John Ryan is the student every Baylor professor wants,” said King, part-time lecturer in religion and the Baylor Interdisciplinary Core (BIC). “He’s intelligent, and he works hard, beyond hard. He is exactly what Baylor needs, and he is exactly what can move Baylor to the next level. If every student was willing to think – critically – about the questions John Ryan is willing to think about, the world would be a much different place... a much more socially just place. I’m grateful to have had John Ryan in class. He made me a better teacher, and I hope – somehow – I helped him become a better student.”
