"Studying German at Canisius College opened my eyes to many new learning and cultural experiences. The depth of German grammar courses and breadth of German cultural courses offered not only allowed me to become proficient in the language, but also helped me to understand the history and the people of Germany. Choosing to study abroad in Germany for a semester put what I learned to real use and challenged me in ways I never would have been challenged had I spent my four years at college in the United States, only. I met many international students and traveled to many countries while in Germany and believe that all college students should travel abroad during their studies to appreciate other cultures and understand their own culture better. Altogether, I am proud to say that I studied German at Canisius College; because it allowed me to gain the confidence to accept and excel at other challenges in my life."
