Bring a laptop. Don't be afraid to speak German to the locals. Absorb as much as you can from the field trips.

Pack light and be open to meeting new people.
Mackenzie Kay Davis, Summer 2012 Participant
I learned a lot about myself and how Americans live as a whole in comparison to another country. At first I was worried about the dramatic change in culture, but realized I should not be scared of the culture, but embrace the differences it has with the United States. It was a really great eye opener to another part of the world.
Samantha Jean Harms, Summer 2016 Participant
The most vital things that I learned deal with sustainability, living life greener, and how clean energy is actually possible. For everyone on this program, and everyone in general, it is critical we learn this in order to save our planet. This program taught me that and gave me faith that it could be possible.
