Program Reviews:
Scott Allen Friesen, Academic Year 2014 Participant
My favorite part of this program was simply being able to fully integrate myself into a foreign culture totally different from that of my own. I was constantly surrounded by so many walks of of life and the knowledge learned from these people and their cultures was invaluable.

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.

Noah Avery Ottinger, Spring 2012 Participant
The University of Bonn offered excursions to its participants in cities and sites all over Germany without any extra cost to the JYP-it was all included. The opportunities to be lead through Germany by Germans were an amazing part of the program and it allowed me to see and understand the country in a way that would have been muddled up by a guidebook. Some of my favorite memories from the program involve evenings in a the parks and gardens with Germans and workers from the international office.

Holden Ann Zimmerman, Spring 2017 Participant
The program has many planned events for the students to participate in, including the Bonn Buddy program, which I highly recommend. There are also opportunities to conduct language tandems, which let you meet even more students at the University of Bonn.
