Discover a way of life other than your own!

"Studying abroad helps students learn a foreign language in a way that no classroom can. It allows the individual to engage in conversation with native speakers anytime. The student will experience and learn many customs, traditions, and social norms of Germany first hand, thus providing them with a better understanding of German life." (Brent, UW-La Crosse)

"In an ever increasingly globalized world, it is becoming more and more important for the everyday citizen to be familiar not only with their own culture, but also that of their global neighbors. Programs like the Hessen-Wisconsin partnership are great for building international bonds between today's students who will become tomorrow's leaders." (David, UW-La Crosse)

"Education on an international scale helps students realize that its's not just ok to be different, it's AWESOME to be different. The goal of university education is to turn out carefully trained, highly productive, and intellectually well-rounded individuals who will make positive contributions to society. International student exchange furthers that goal. This opportunity for travel is so much more than simply checking off landmarks I have seen, and learning a little German in the process. It is an opportunity to have my beliefs and perspectives challenged by people from the German culture and to grow as an individual." (Amanda, UW-Stevens Point)

"I want to study abroad for the experience and friendships I can develop while in Germany. It'll bring me memories to cherish for a lifetime, therefore studying abroad is a choice I refuse to pass up." (Brandon, UW-Eau Claire)
