Theven "Brice" Smith, Summer 2012 Participant
My favorite part of the program was the unity between faculty and the students. We all quickly became a family, which I believe helped the program to be one of the most enriching experiences of my life. I will never forget Holzkirchen, and certainly would recommend the program to any German student.
Summer 2015 Participant
My favorite part of the program was that we were able to go to so many different cities. We were able to experience Cologne, Berlin, and Munich, and had a handful of detours to smaller places as well. The food, architecture, history, and people in each of these cities were all distinctly German, but different at the same time. It was an eye-opening experience for someone who had never traveled out of the States before.

It would be very helpful to bring a laptop.
