Program Reviews:
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.

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.

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.

Juliana Yajing Hacker, Spring 2016 Participant
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.
