It is slightly daunting to move to another country for five months, but keep in mind that the Junior Year Program helps you the entire time. There were very few times that I had no idea what was happening or felt that I had no help.

I learned that you should never be afraid to make mistakes or try something new. Never say no to anything. If the idea of going hiking in the Blackforest or spontaneous train ride to a random city makes you uncomfortable, then I recommend doing it.

The beautiful city of Bonn and the University of Bonn. It was a beautiful and fun campus, and the city was a great place to be a student. The state and city government were very accommodating for all students, exchange or local (free public transport anywhere within the state was an example).

The greatest part of this program is that it allowed for me to meet so many different people from so many different countries. It also gave me the opportunity to truly use my German. I was able to make so many close friends while using German as are primary langauge! This program allows for the individual to decide how much language immersion he or she wants. Their are plenty of people speaking english, spanish, German and many other languages therefor people of all levels can benefit. It is truly a great program!
