Being a language major was one of the best decisions I made. It allowed me to learn more about foreign cultures and traditions than any other courses I took in my time at Canisius and provided me with a skill that distinguishes me from others. In conjunction with studying German, I still consider my study abroad experience as one of my greatest life experiences so far. Study abroad gave me the opportunity to put everything I've learned in my studies to use everyday, and I learned so much more about the culture and lifestyle of Europeans. Throughout my time as a language student and my study abroad I have gained invaluable experiences and friends I will never forget.
