What was the best part of your experience?

For me, the best part of my experience was being able to immerse myself completely in the foreign culture of a foreign country, and most importantly, enjoying this experience with 30 other students.

How did this experience impact you academically?

As a student who double majors in German, I can tell my German abilities increased very much during my study abroad experience. Being able to speak the language is very important, but being able to understand and love the culture behind it is crucial, especially for a language student like me.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

I have always expected to have a career related to international business. Being able to live in another country definitely give me new perspectives regarding academy, interpersonal relationships, and cultural and social diversity. This study abroad experience definitely helped me develop my global mindset to a new level.
