Program Reviews:
Samuel Odd Walter, Spring 2013 Participant
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).

Matthew E Styers, Spring 2015 Participant
The relationships I have made over the course of this year are certainly the biggest gain I have made. Not only has the immersion of the program given my German an extra boost, but the friends that I now have from all parts of the globe, Taiwan, Japan, China, Singapore, Russia, Czech Republic, Austria, Belgium, France, Spain, and more.

Noah Avery Ottinger, Spring 2012 Participant
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.

Sarah Corinne Cluff, Spring 2017 Participant
I thought the best part was participating in classes at the university level, and not just in the international office, since I got to meet so many new Germans and that's when I learned the most.
