excursion to Strasbourg was certainly a highlight. We had the opportunity to visit and tour the European Parliament building and meet the director. Touring Strasbourg Castle was really neat. I've never seen or been in a castle before. It was neat to get to see how different the two cultures (Germany and France) are, yet they are so close in geographical location.
I enjoyed the excursion to the Mercedes Benz factory and the visit to the Mercedes Museum. I was highly impressed by the way they ran their business- very efficient. And the museum was like something out of the future.
The Italian opera in the park was also a great experience as I have never been to an opera before.
I really enjoyed the excursion to SAP corporate headquarters. They treated us like kings and queens. There was so much interactive futuristic technology in and around the building. Everyone in the program left wanting to work for the company. I've never seen anything like it.
Germany in general was a great experience. It is such a beautiful country. So much beautiful architecture and old buildings. I absolutely adored the city of Heidelberg.
I really appreciated the way the staff members and professors cared for us and went out of their way to make sure we were okay and enjoying the program.
I also like the public transportation as it was very easy and convenient to get around without a car. The German people were great. I wanted to spend more time there. I made some really great German friends.
The accommodations in the Guest House on the campus were wonderful. The rooms far exceeded my expectations.
I would recommend this program to everyone! Everyone should go. I've already been suggesting it to some of my friends on campus. I had the time of my life. I am so glad I decided to go. It was well worth the money.
