"Being part of the German department at Canisius has helped me to diversify my education and given me incredible real world experiences. As a German major at Canisius, I never felt like I was just another student. I had a support system from both professors and fellow students that made me much more eager to learn. Through classroom learning as well as my study abroad experience at Canisius, the German language became not just another part of my education but part of my life. With small tight knit classes and a professor who had a vested interest in my future German became not just another series of courses I took but it turned into a passion for me."
