Tracy Geukes '04
Major / Minor: Secondary
Education- Major: German; Minor: English
Study Abroad Location: Freiburg (IES)
Program Duration: Fall 2002
Favorite Courses: Political Science course on the European Union and a German Literature course
on literature written during the period of the Third Reich.
Favorite Memory: Simply living among the German culture
in Freiburg is an experience in itself; experiencing the food, music, and
nightlife were all especially gratifying for me. I also enjoyed the traveling
I was able to do. I visited four other countries outside of Germany; the
sights and people I met were absolutely fabulous.
Advice: I would suggest immersing yourself into the culture
as much as possible. It is very easy to become apart of the "American
group." This then isolates you from things you might
be able to encounter otherwise. The opportunity to live among the culture
is a rare one, so I suggest taking full advantage of it and experiencing
the most that you possibly can.
