My semester at Jacobs went very well I would say. I didn’t really know what to expect when I came to Germany, although I had planned on coming here for a while when I applied a year ago. I’ve had a successful semester in that I met so many people that I built close relationships with and I’ve also gotten closer to the people that came here with me from my home university. The Jacobs community, being an international community, really fostered getting to know so many people from different cultures that I wasn’t familiar with – I appreciated that most about this semester.

The international community at Jacobs made me feel more at home than my home university; sharing my culture with other people who were equally excited to share their own helped me form meaningful, lasting bonds with people I really love, admire, and hope to keep in touch with. The small classroom sizes with esteemed professors made me more intrigued in learning content over meaningless griping for a good grade, and helped me forget some of the stress I had associated with higher education overall. Having a free SemesterTicket kept me exploring Germany and learning more about its culture and history. What a perfect blend of life, adventure, and learning - I'll really miss you, Jacobs!

Jacobs truly represents a diverse and dynamic community where students from all over the globe are able to share a bit of their culture and also learn about others. This semester, I have been lucky enough to engage in this process of sharing, listening, and growing with some amazing students who I can now call friends. Its been a great experience!

When I first arrived to Jacobs, what surprised me the most was its diversity and the internationality of the campus. It is amazing to see how even though all the students have different nationalities and come from different backgrounds, they all form a strong community. Jacobs has been a home to me for the past 4 months. I'm very happy I decided to come here and I'm definitely going to miss it when I leave.

I had wonderful time at Jacobs during my 4 month stay in the study abroad program. My first reason to study abroad was to expose myself to European culture and lifestyle and learn from the surrounding people. Jacobs served as a wonderful place to help meet all sorts of people from all over the world, involve in activities, and immerse into the German culture. The beautiful location setting, easy access to downtown and shopping areas, and weekly local markets/festivals made my stay even more enjoyable.
