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.

I think what surprised me here most was the people. I mean, the sheer diversity of them. You know, you easily forget that there are people from different countries growing up in cultures completely unlike your own. It’s easy to think that the people and experiences you grow up with around you is most of what life has to offer. But being at Jacobs you remember that wow, there’s people my age from places I’ll never travel to nor come to appreciate who have the same interests, passion, fears, and goals that I have in trying to make it through life.
