Universität Freiburg.. E-Mail.. stevie.. bailey.. daad@gmail.. com.. Hallo! My name is Stevie Bailey, and I am a currently a senior at Northwestern University.. Last fall I was blessed to spend a semester in Freiburg through a program called IES Abroad.. By taking classes in the IES Language and Area studies program, I was able to meet great German friends, improve my German language skills, and experience a culture surprisingly different from my own.. Living in Germany was one of the most terrifying and exciting adventures of my life.. I was completely outside of my comfort zone in every imaginable way.. I lived with five other young adults--three men and two women--who were all German, except one man who was an Italian exchange student.. I commuted on the train or by bike every day to classes, cooked with ingredients I had never heard of before, and went to University lectures and church services where I could only understand forty percent (at first).. From the classroom to my apartment to the supermarket in town, I was forced to speak German all day, every day.. It was AWESOME.. I had the opportunity to participate in many of the cultural activities in Freiburg such as going to theater productions, concerts, the opera, the Weihnachtsmarkt and even seeing the Pope—in person! Somewhere between Kaffee und Kuchen with friends and hiking to the medieval ruins on Schönberg, I fell in love with Germany and its people, culture, and of course food! Choosing to study in Freiburg was hands down the best decision I have made in my college career, and I encourage you to study abroad and experience it for yourself.. I could never adequately describe all the amazing experiences that I had studying in Germany, but if you have any questions please email me and I will try my best.. Tschüss!.. Hunter Banister.. Trinity University, Texas.. Minor:.. CBYX for Young Professionals (PPP) - Köln and Bremen.. Banister@daad.. Moin! My name is Hunter Banister and I am entering my senior year at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, majoring in Engineering Science, if all goes to plan German Studies, and minoring in Mathematics.. I was a member of the 2010-2011 Congress Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (PPP auf Deutsch).. I had the opportunity to study at an intensive language center for two months in Köln, study for four months at the technical school Hochschule Bremen, and complete a five month internship with the global insulation firm Kaefer Isoliertechnik in Bremen.. During this year I experienced a range of living situations, was immersed in not only the student but also professional life, was involved in sports groups and churches, took advantage of the nightlife, traveled as much as possible, and most importantly, experienced the culture of northern Germany, which is notably quite different than that of southern Germany.. My hobbies are swimming, ultimate Frisbee, volleyball, tennis, Tischtennis, Risk (yes, the board game), long walks on the beach, home improvement projects, and discussing Harry Potter.. If you have any questions about studying or working in Germany feel free to contact me.. Tchüß!.. Macie Basom.. University of California, Santa Barbara.. Technische Universität Berlin.. macie.. basom.. Hallo! My name is Macie Basom and I am a bachelor's student at the University of California in Santa Barbara majoring in Mathematics with a double minor in German studies and Education.. I just completed a year abroad in Berlin, Germany as a DAAD undergraduate scholarship holder.. I participated in two German intensive language programs at Freie Universität Berlin before beginning my two semesters at the Technische Universität in Berlin.. While at TU, I had the opportunity to study math as well as several philosophy and art history courses with fellow German students.. I took a strong initiative to improve my German skills to fluency and I am proud to say that after one year, ich habe es geschafft! Beyond my studies, I enjoyed the fun and international environment of Berlin, while involving myself in various German cultural experiences.. I also had the chance to travel throughout Germany and several other European countries.. My experience abroad was truly everything I could have dreamed of and more! I am very excited and honored to help other students in creating their own memorable experience.. If you have any questions or concerns about studying abroad in Germany or planning your extracurricular travels, feel free to contact me!.. Diane Berringer.. University of Maryland.. Freie Universität Berlin.. diane.. berringer.. Hallo! My name is Diane Berringer and I am a senior studying Criminology & Criminal Justice, German, and Public Policy at the University of Maryland, College Park.. I first visited Germany during the 2009 FIFA World Cup, and immediately fell in love with the country and its rich culture.. Shortly after, I started studying the language and took advantage of the opportunity to spend a semester at the Freie Universität in Berlin, Germany.. It didn't take long for Berlin to become my all-time favorite city in the world! It is a great place for a young person to live and study.. On the weekends that I wasn’t taking advantage of the many activities that Berlin has to offer, I hopped on the bahn and traveled to other cities such as Dresden, Mannheim, Munich, Warsaw, and Gdansk.. It is safe to say that studying and living in Germany was an unforgettable experience! I will always remember attending Oktoberfest, visiting various Christmas Markets, eating great food, meeting new friends, spending Christmas in the Black Forest, and attending professional soccer matches.. I love sharing my experiences with others and would encourage anyone to study in Deutschland! Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have!.. Rebecca Brock.. University of Kentucky.. Biology and Chemistry.. DAAD RISE - Technische Universität Braunschweig.. Brock@daad.. org.. Hi! My name’s Rebecca and I am an undergraduate at UK, majoring in Biology and Chemistry with a German Studies minor.. I’ve been to Germany many times because of my family there, but last summer I was able to go through DAAD RISE and spend three months working in a biochemical research lab.. It was also a chance for me to become more independent as I was away from my family.. I loved the program since I was able to see how research laboratories are in Germany as well as what opportunities I could have if I decided to go to graduate school there.. Aside from that, I also learned how the day to day life in modern Germany is without the “vacation” feel.. I shopped for food, and clothes instead of souvenirs; I went to festivals and cook-outs instead of tours.. I rode bikes and took trains, city buses, and street-cars instead of cars and tour buses.. I made friends with people from Germany, England, France, Spain, Iran, Italy, and even Chile! Studying abroad isn’t just about seeing another country; it’s about living it! And while it may be a bit intimidating at first, the experience lasts you a life-time.. If you have any concerns or questions about studying abroad, be they on what to expect or just curiosity, I’d be happy to answer.. Jason Choe.. Illinois Institute of Technology.. RISE - Universität Offenburg.. jason.. choe.. Guten Tag! My name is Jason, and at the end of my third year at Illinois Institute of Technology, I had the honor of being selected as a recipient of the DAAD RISE internship scholarship program.. This was a summer program which allowed me to work and research for a PhD student in the University of Offenburg.. Interestingly enough, I did research on 3D data translation for virtual reality environment using Java and XML for mobile technology.. This was a great experience for me because mobile technology is a field of interest of mine, and to get hands-on experience in another country was invaluable for me.. Offenburg is a small town located in the very south west corner and very close to the borders of France and Switzerland.. I was a bit cautious before heading out on this adventure because first of all, I didn't speak any German and secondly I have never been to Europe.. These concerns all became obsolete as soon as I landed in Germany.. Almost everyone I met spoke some English and was very accommodating.. Not only did I learn a lot from my internship, I traveled more than I expected, met a lot of great friends, and experienced new culture in many towns and countries.. I highly recommend the opportunity that DAAD offers to anyone thinking about traveling abroad.. It was quite an eye-opener and a life changing experience.. I'm available for questions if you have any.. Cheers!.. Ian Clark.. Northeastern University - Boston.. Leibniz University Hannover.. Clark@daad.. I am pursuing my bachelor’s degree in psychology at Northeastern University in Boston, MA.. In Germany, my host university was Leibniz University in Hannover, where I worked in the International Office for six months as part of Northeastern’s International Co-op program.. My responsibilities included attending to the needs of Hannover’s international student population, translating, and working at university events.. While in Hannover I also interpreted at a British-German film shoot, and in Reichenau on the Bodensee, I ministered at a German-Swiss wedding.. I travelled extensively within Germany, but also to Switzerland and Denmark.. I am currently working as a laboratory technician in the Intensive Physiological Monitoring unit at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, and I translate occasionally for an engineer in Burgdorf.. My hobbies are physical fitness, reading, and tinkering with my old Ducati motorcycle.. One of my fondest memories of Germany is waking up to the sound of ducks quacking in my dorm every morning! Because we were on a river, the inner courtyard of our dorm was home to a small family of ducks, ducklings and all.. Joseph Cloward.. University of Pennsylvania.. joseph.. cloward.. Hi! I'm a senior at the University of Pennsylvania majoring in International Relations and German Studies.. I just spent my junior year abroad in Berlin through the Berlin Consortium for German Studies thanks to the support of a DAAD Undergraduate Scholarship.. I started studying German in 7th grade and first visited Germany as a month-long exchange student in Hamburg while in 10th grade.. After that first experience, I knew I'd be coming back to study abroad in college (and hopefully for future research, study, or work).. While studying in Berlin, I took classes at the Freie Universität and Humboldt Universität in subjects in both of my majors.. I joined a university choir, which helped me get more involved on campus and provided an opportunity to perform several times in the Berliner Philharmonie.. I also joined a local church congregation where I sang in the choir and taught Sunday School weekly for children ages 8 to 11.. I also volunteered several times each week at a family center serving children from immigrant backgrounds and children from an in-house foster program, which helped give context to my senior thesis research on immigration and integration in Europe, while allowing me to become part of a community in Berlin.. And any time I didn't have something else to do, I enjoyed everything else that Berlin and Germany have to offer – visiting castles and museums, frequenting the opera, and traveling throughout Germany and Europe (Switzerland, Austria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Greece, Bulgaria, and Turkey).. I loved my experience studying in Germany and would be happy to answer any questions about my experiences!.. Yanalte De Haro.. California State University, Long Beach.. University of Tübingen, Staatliche Akademie der Bildenen Künste Stuttgart.. yanalte.. deharo.. com.. Hi! My name is Yanalte De Haro and I am a senior at California State University, Long Beach.. I studied abroad for a year in Germany through the California State University International Program.. Since I am pursuing a double-major in German Studies and Art, I studied German at the University of Tübingen for my first semester and then switched to the Stuttgart State Academy of Art, both of which are located in the Schwäbisch part of Germany.. Thanks to the DAAD Undergraduate Scholarship, I was able to experience a wonderful year in Germany full of unforgettable moments.. From making friends from all over the world to the delicious bakeries to going to Karneval in Cologne to getting both my appendix and wisdom teeth taken out and, of course, traveling around Europe, I have had experiences I will never forget during my year in Germany.. Studying outside of the U.. has been a very eye-opening experience, especially studying at the art academy in Stuttgart, where the method of teaching art was completely different compared to what I am used to at my home university.. This method, which gives the artist more freedom, definitely helped me approach art differently and further my creativity.. This past year has been such a rewarding experience and I encourage everyone to study abroad.. I look forward to hearing from you with any questions you may have!.. Harris Engelmann.. Washington University in St.. Louis.. Universität Tübingen, Goethe Institut Bonn.. harris.. engelmann.. Servus! My name is Harris Engelmann and I am entering my senior year at Washington University in St.. Louis, where I am majoring in German Literature and European Studies.. I just returned from six months in Germany, including one month at the Goethe Institut in Bonn and the summer semester at Karl Eberhard Universität in Tübingen.. I had the opportunity to study German language and history and the European political system and had an amazing time while doing so! Living and studying in a University town like Tübingen was a fully new experience for me, and I really enjoyed the opportunity to become part of the larger student community in a whole new setting.. During my time in Germany I also got to travel throughout Western Europe, see some of my favorite American and German bands at the Southside music festival, and cheer on BVB Dortmund in the Bundesliga and the German Nationalelf during the European Soccer Championships.. I expected to have a great time in Germany, but it is safe to say that my time in Tübingen exceeded all of my expectations, and then some.. I look forward to encouraging even more people to take advantage of the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Germany!.. Heidi Flees.. University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point.. German Education, International Studies.. Anthropology and Teaching English as a Second Language.. Philipps-Universität Marburg.. Flees@daad.. Hallo! My name is Heidi and I am a Senior at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, USA.. I am studying German Education as well as Anthropology and Teaching English as a Second Language.. Germany became a large part of my life rather quickly when I was in High School.. My first experience abroad was when I was sixteen; I went to Städtisches Ratsgymnasium in Gladbeck through the Congress-Bundestag Exchange Program.. I lived with a host family and attended school for one year! Since then I’ve been able to go back twice, and most recently I studied at the Philipps-Universität in Marburg.. My semester program focused on German Literature, Culture, Reading & Listening Understanding, and Speaking Ability.. It was great to be re-immersed in the country that I have fallen in love with.. The things I miss the most are the bakeries, the public transportation system, and sitting outside ALL THE TIME.. Other things I enjoy include reading books, riding motorcycle, playing tennis and volleyball, traveling, photography, and tent camping.. If you are interested in studying abroad or have any questions, please feel free to contact me.. I’d love to hear from you and about your adventures & dreams!.. Caren Garcia.. University of Texas at Austin.. Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg.. caren.. garcia.. Servus! I’m Caren and entering my senior year at the University of Texas at Austin, majoring in Political Science and German.. I was incredibly fortunate to have studied at the Albert-Ludwigs Universität Freiburg, a great university located in the sunniest part of Germany! Prior to studying in Freiburg, I did a two month internship at a school in Darmstadt, Hessen.. I assisted teaching English and Spanish classes, and it made for a fantastic experience and a great start to my year in Germany.. While studying I was able to satiate my incredible desire to partake in many German celebrations and traditions such as the Oktoberfest, Kölner Karneval, Canstatter Wasen, Christmas markets, family get-togethers and much more were finally made into reality! Germany has a lot to offer in terms of culture, history and nature and does not disappoint.. From the grandiose Alps to the majestic shores of the North Sea, there is something that will be sure to inspire you in your time in Germany.. Freiburg itself is situated along the gorgeous Black Forest and is only less than an hour away from France and Switzerland, an ideal location for the joyful bicyclist that I am! I’ll be more than happy to help and encourage others to study abroad in Germany, just feel free to contact me!.. Dorothee Goettert.. Louisiana State University.. Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn.. dorothee.. goettert.. Hallo! My name is Dorothee and I am an undergraduate at Louisiana State University, double majoring in Food Science and Animal Science with a minor in German.. I’ve been to Germany many times visiting with my family, and this past year I received the opportunity to study abroad for two semesters at the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität in Bonn.. My year there gave me the chance to learn about everyday student life in Germany.. Rather than me being chauffeured around by my family, I had to adjust to using public transportation and finding out things for myself, exploring and enjoying a culture and country I had mostly known as a tourist.. Studying at a German university has sparked my interest in attending graduate school there.. I made many new friends from people all over the world and received insight into more than just the German culture.. At the beginning it may seem intimidating, getting used to living in  ...   DAAD Undergraduate Scholarship.. I study Civil Engineering and Economics at the University of Oklahoma with minors in International Studies and German, and during my time in Stuttgart I was able to take a wide variety of German-taught technical, cultural, and language courses, as well as make life-long contacts with exceptional students from all over the world.. Through its many renowned international English-taught technical masters programs, the University of Stuttgart attracts a massive pool of talented students, providing a rich cultural and professional environment for anyone hoping to gain exposure abroad, even to places outside of Germany and for people who do not yet have excellent German language skills.. From such an international hub, I was able to do more than just travel around Europe – I was able to have my fellow international friends give me a native’s perspective to many historical European cities.. Because of my exposure to these great technical programs during my exchange year, I plan to study full-time in Stuttgart or another technical school in Germany for an international graduate degree.. I would highly recommend anyone, especially technical students, to take advantage of such a unique opportunity to broaden their personal or professional horizons by studying in Germany.. Noah Ottinger.. University of Kansas.. noah.. ottinger.. Hallo! My name is Noah Ottinger and I study English and German at the University of Kansas.. For the past 6 months, I have been studying at the University of Bonn in order to gain a higher proficiency in the language.. Through German, I have formed strong friendships with people from all over the world, friendships that will last for many years to come.. My time here in the Rhineland has opened my eyes to a country that offers so much in literature, language, and history.. I am still completely in awe of the massive size of the Kölner Dom, no matter how many times I see it.. Studying in Germany has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.. I was never once in need of any sort of museum, nature hike, or festival.. If you have any questions about studying in Germany, feel free to ask!.. Julia Pannewitz.. University of Mary Washington.. Universität Trier.. julia.. pannewitz.. Hallo! My name is Julia Pannewitz, and I am from Yorktown, Virginia.. I am entering my senior year at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia, where I study German, Linguistics, and Business.. I just returned from a full academic year abroad at the Universitaet Trier.. While at Uni Trier, I was able to get credit for courses from all three of my fields of study.. I loved living in Trier for so many reasons.. For example, my window looked out over the beautiful Moselle River and some of Trier's well-known vineyards.. Also, I was able to take a 45-minute train ride to Luxembourg, where I could test out my newly-acquired Luxembourgish skills.. Being able to take such a unique course at Uni Trier was a great opportunity for me as a Linguistics student.. This past year was actually my second time living abroad in Germany, as I had received a CBYX scholarship when I was 18 years old.. I know very well why Germany is such a great place to study, live, and travel as a young adult--just ask me about it!.. Isabelle Plessis.. University of British Columbia - Vancouver, Canada.. Ludwig-Maximilian Universität Muenchen.. isabelle.. plessis.. Grüß Gott! My name is Isabelle Plessis, and I am a fourth year Political Science and International Relations double major at the University of British Columbia in beautiful Vancouver, Canada.. Last year I was lucky enough to spend a year abroad at the Ludwig-Maximilian Universität, which is just a complicated sounding name for the University of Munich… I chose Munich because I wanted to learn German and about German culture in a bigger city that would still offer a ‘traditional’ setting.. I absolutely fell in love with Munich, with pretzels, with the European lifestyle, and with Germany! In Munich studied political science and history, completed an internship at an environmental humanities think tank, worked as a research assistant on European integration research project, and took private voice lessons with a singer of the Bavarian State Opera.. On top of these exciting opportunities, I also snowboarded in the Alps, went to music festivals, travelled throughout Germany and western Europe, met amazing people, and took advantage of Munich’s unreal traditions, heritage, and of course, beer culture.. In this year I learned so much about myself, Germany, and managed to improve my German, and I am happy to help you out with any questions or concerns you might have about studying abroad!.. Lindsey Pruden.. Brigham Young University-Idaho.. Universität Paderborn.. lindsey.. pruden.. Hello! My name is Lindsey Pruden and I am a senior at Brigham Young University-Idaho majoring in chemistry and German.. In the summer of 2012, I completed an internship through the DAAD-RISE Program at the University of Paderborn.. I absolutely loved my experience in Germany and at the university where I worked! The people in my research group were very nice and helpful.. They were like a small family and I felt so grateful that I could be part of their family for the two months I lived in Paderborn.. In my research group, I had the opportunity to speak a lot of German and to learn different things in chemistry that I hadn’t yet come across in my undergraduate work.. Members of my research group often got together and hung out.. They always invited me and I enjoyed my time getting to know them and learn more about their country and culture.. I also learned a lot about the German National Football (Soccer) team.. Often, we would watch the football games as Germany played in the European Cup.. I bought a semester ticket that allowed me to travel throughout the whole German state of Nordrhein-Westfalen.. It was an amazing experience! I had the opportunity to visit many cities and learn new things.. I really enjoyed visiting the many churches and learning about their history.. Living in Germany was an amazing experience, one that I hope to have again.. I would be more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you might have about living or studying in Germany.. Please feel free to contact me.. Rachel Rahn.. Valparaiso University.. Universität Tübingen.. rachel.. rahn.. Hello! My name is Rachel Rahn, and I studied for the past year at Eberhard Karls Universität in Tübingen, a university city in Baden-Württemberg.. Spending my junior year at the university there has definitely been the highlight of my college experience! My courses there were challenging and exciting, as I took German literature and language courses alongside neuroscience and biology courses taught through the internationally-known natural science wing there.. Beyond that, my time in Germany allowed me to immerse myself in Swabian culture (going to Volksfest in Stuttgart and the chocolate and Christmas markets in Tübingen were highlights!) as well as making friends with my German classmates and enjoying the student social scene.. It was great to be able to travel, both in Germany (Berlin, Munich, and Stuttgart to name a few) as well as greater Europe, but it was always great to return "home" to Tübingen.. Already, I'm looking forward to going back and love to talk about the experience and Germany in general!.. Meghan Reidy.. Ball State University.. Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster.. meghan.. reidy.. Hallo! My name is Meghan Reidy, and I am an undergraduate studying German, Music Performance, and History at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.. Last year, I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in a one-to-one student exchange with the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität in Münster, Nordrhein-Westfalen.. With this exchange, I took classes in German, history, religion, and Spanish and also held a part-time job at a library.. I had studied German in high school and college, but compared to what I learned in school, my German improved by leaps and bounds just in the short time I was there.. My experience has shaped me so much: when I came to Münster, German was something I used at most three hours a week in class, I had only ever lived at home or in a dorm, and I knew no one in the city.. Over the course of the year, however, I became comfortable speaking German in every situation, signed my first lease, and made lifelong friends, both Germans and international students.. Although I will admit the thought of moving away where I didn't know anyone and everyone speaks a different language was terrifying at first, this year abroad is easily the best decision I have ever made.. I mean, where else can you listen to a Beethoven concert in Beethoven's house? Germany is a great study abroad option because of the depth of cultural and academic significance in the country.. Germany is, after all, the land of Beethoven and Schumann, of Max Planck and Werner Heisenberg, of Goethe and Schiller.. Germany is a great country in which to study, and I hope more people will have the opportunity to experience that for themselves.. To that end, I am happy to answer any questions you might have.. Just send me an email!.. Stephanie Rempel.. University of Winnipeg.. Freie Universität Berlin.. stephanie.. rempel.. My name is Stephanie Rempel and I study Political Science and German at the University of Winnipeg.. Recently during the 2011-2012 academic year, I lived and studied in Berlin at the Freie Universität Berlin with the assistance of a DAAD Undergraduate Scholarship.. Before the start of the semester in October 2011 I took advantage of the ‘Vorkurs’ program.. This 6-week orientation class provided me not only with the extra language boost I needed but also was a great way to meet new international students and friends and learn important historical and cultural aspects of my new home.. Once the German academic year started, I was able to take more language classes and German history classes designed for international students in addition to the English and German language politics classes I took at the Otto-Suhr Institut and North-America Institut at the FUB.. During my year abroad I fell in love with Berlin much more than I expected.. Berlin is not only a unique capital city within Europe but also unique within Germany.. It boasts great opportunities between weekend trips in the former eastern bloc, meeting new people or shopping at the Turkish and Vietnamese markets.. Berlin is also home to more ballet, theater, opera companies and museums than one can count- and then you realize how many interesting and diverse neighborhoods the city has.. Berlin really does have something for everyone.. I have had such a great year there and I know I will go back but before I do, let me help you get there too.. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and concerns about Berlin or studying in Germany.. I would love to help!.. Morgan Robinson.. James Madison University.. Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.. morgan.. robinson.. Servus! My name is Morgan Robinson and I am a senior at James Madison University, majoring in Modern Foreign Languages (German and French).. I was fortunate enough to spend that last ten months as a DAAD Undergraduate Scholar at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich, Germany and I lost my heart in Bavaria.. It was an incredible experience.. Over this past year, I've learned so much, met many great friends, gained work experience and travelled extensively.. I look forward to sharing my experience and tips with you!.. Kaitlyn Roth.. University of Iowa.. TU Dortmund.. kaitlyn.. roth.. Hi my name is Kaitlyn Roth and I am currently a junior at the University of Iowa, majoring in biomedical engineering and minoring in German.. I attended TU Dortmund during Summer Semester 2012 where I was able to take classes for my major, including a physiology internship, and I was able to finish my minor in German.. While I was living in Dortmund, Germany I was able to experience the most populated area of Germany and a non-tourist area.. I also got the chance to meet many students, travel, and have the best five months of my life.. The best part of this experience for me was becoming friends with people from all over the world, while experiencing what life is like in a completely different country.. I would strongly encourage anyone to pursue studying abroad, because it is life changing.. I am more than happy to answer any questions or share my experience with you! I encourage you, if you are even considering spending time abroad, to go for it and take advantage of this opportunity.. Denisse Ruiz.. Wellesley College.. denisse.. ruiz.. Hey! I’m Denisse, and I’m a Comparative Literature and German Studies double major at Wellesley College in Boston, MA.. I’m originally from Los Angeles, CA, but I decided to travel to the other coast for a new experience.. Similarly, I decided to study abroad my junior year at the Freie Universität in Berlin for a full year.. Taking that 14-hour flight from California to Germany was the best choice I could have made.. I highly recommend everyone study a year, a semester, or even a summer abroad since the experiences and insights you gain in such a short amount of time are invaluable.. I was enrolled at the University and took courses in German with other German students, which intimidated me at first.. But the rigorous academics helped me improve my language skills, and I’m proud of myself for having mastered classes in a foreign language.. Aside from my academics, I interned at a publishing firm in Berlin, which allowed me to interact with the German professional world.. However, Berlin was not just about learning, but also about interacting with a foreign culture and integrating myself into a great social scene.. Germany has many opportunities to offer students of different walks of life, and time spent in Germany can only benefit you.. Even though I’m back in the US, I will always refer to Berlin as a home.. If you have any questions about studying in Germany, please feel free to contact me.. I’m more than delighted to help you start your journey!.. Craig Rupp.. University of Nebraska, Lincoln.. Deutschland Language Institute.. craig.. rupp.. I am a senior History and German major at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.. I have always been intrigued by history, particularly German history, but the opportunity to learn the language first came to me as a freshman in college.. After a few short semesters of German, I traveled to Berlin to study both the language and history of Germany at a language institute.. There I stood on much of the same ground as the history I had just learned about, which was certainly my favorite aspect of living in Berlin.. After returning home I continued to advocate studying in Germany by founding a student German club.. This coming year I plan to do undergraduate research about Germans in Nebraska and organize some exciting events for studying abroad in Germany!.. Rachel Schmidt.. Mount Holyoke College.. Universität Leipzig.. schmidt.. Hallo! My name is Rachel Schmidt and I am a senior at Mount Holyoke College majoring in German studies and philosophy.. I started taking German in the spring semester of my freshman year and liked it so much that I declared it as a second major.. I just got back from 11 months of study abroad at the Universität Leipzig in the former East Germany where I took courses directly at the university in philosophy, cultural studies, linguistics, and teaching German as a foreign language.. Between the support of the international office and the friendliness of the German students I felt welcomed from day one.. I shared an apartment with German students and made great friends with both German and international students from all over Europe.. I was able to travel around Germany, including Berlin, Hamburg, Dresden, and Lübeck, as well as to a total of nine countries throughout Europe, including Hungary and Italy.. I had an amazing year and recommend study abroad in Germany (especially Leipzig!) to all who are interested! Please don’t hesitate to contact me – I look forward to answering your questions and sharing my experience!.. Cecilia Sebastian.. Johns Hopkins University.. cecilia.. sebastian.. Hello! My name is Cecilia Sebastian, and I am a Philosophy and German Major at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.. I spent my junior year studying at the Freie Universität with the Berlin Consortium of Global Studies (BCGS) exchange program.. There, I had the chance to meet with and take classes from brilliant professors, visit archives and attend conferences at universities throughout Germany.. Aside from academics, I began working for the Berlin-based translation company Samson & Fritaud Text, where I write translations and subtitle films.. I also found the time to pursue my own interests, such as running, opera and art, in the country’s leading metropolis.. Studying abroad in Berlin was a tremendous experience, through which I gained a certain critical and social awareness that has allowed me to grow as an academic and an individual.. I believe other young Americans would value and benefit from similar experiences of self-growth and cultural appreciation and look forward to helping out those who are interested.. Adrienne Showman.. University of Central Florida.. Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.. adrienne.. showman.. Hallo! My name is Adrienne Showman.. I am a senior at the University of Central Florida, pursuing my bachelor’s degree in Molecular Biology and Microbiology.. I was awarded a scholarship to complete a research internship in Berlin, Germany through the RISE: Research Internships in Science and Engineering.. The opportunity to not only be able to live abroad for the summer but also gain valuable experience in the science research community was certainly incredible.. Having always been fascinated by other cultures than my own, I hoped to have the chance to be able to study abroad during my college career.. However, as a student in the Life Sciences it can be tricky to find time to take a break from classes and labs.. The RISE Program was the perfect fit for me; not only was I able to gain more hands-on experience at the lab bench, but I was also able to immerse myself in the German culture, beyond a week-long trip.. Being able to experience day to day life in the city is something that I fell in love with, from visiting parks and bakeries to weekend getaways in Potsdam and other suburbs.. While I gained a new appreciation for some of the conveniences Americans have that Germans don’t, I fell in love with the people I met and the places I went, and look forward to returning.. I’m happy to address any questions, comments or concerns about studying in Germany, especially in relation to science and technology.. Jenna Troop.. Amherst College.. Georg-August-Universität Göttingen.. jenna.. troop.. Hallo! My name is Jenna Troop and I’m a senior at Amherst College, where I study European studies and German.. I just got home from a semester at the University of Göttingen where I had the opportunity to start the semester off with an intensive German Language course run through the university, before spending the semester studying history.. I had a great time improving my German and meeting students from Germany and around the world.. Göttingen truly was the perfect place in which to spend a semester.. From playing tennis to getting involved in dorm life, I got to meet wonderful people and experience a fabulous new culture.. I enjoyed the opportunity to study, learn, and travel around Lower-Saxony, Germany, and the rest of Europe and I look forward to the opportunity to share my experiences with you!..
