My name is Delia, I am a Junior this year at Lewis & Clark and am currently studying abroad in Munich, Germany for the entire year. Around 60 % of students at Lewis & Clark study abroad during their time at Lewis & Clark. I personally think that it is a wonderful opportunity and something that everyone should take advantage of during their college experience. I remember one of the many reasons why I chose to study at Lewis & Clark was because for my major (Foreign Languages; German and Spanish) I am actually REQUIRED to study abroad. If I am absolutely required to study abroad for me that is no problem at all, that is actually everything but a problem. LC also does a really good job at figuring out how to let people study abroad if they want to, no matter what their major is.
Just a few background facts about me: I am 21 years old, grew up in Montpelier, VT but studied abroad in Tehuacan, Mexico for a year during high school. I love to travel, learn languages, and be outdoors. I also like to play card games, dance around in my pajamas, and watch Ellen Degeneres.
I arrived in Munich on August 31st, about a month ago, and everything so far has been wonderful. Learning to speak German and hear German 24/7 has been a bit difficult but other than that I have had a wonderful time. With Lewis & Clark I have been able to travel so much throughout Germany and within Munich already. The first four weeks of our time here has pretty much been like a German bootcamp, being in school from 9-4 every day learning German, history about Munich and about life now in Munich. We just ended Presemester with visiting Berlin for a week. I will leave you with some pictures from my first month here.
If you ever have any questions for me please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Wishing all of you working on writing your college applications for early decision or early action all the best, It will all be over soon!
Until next time,
