Student Profile

Gregg Forse

IES Germany, Fall semester

While abroad, I gained valuable communication and writing skills by taking classes taught in German, began to understand the differences between fully integrating and simply "living" in a foreign culture, and found the benefits of challenging myself in ways that I previously would have been uncomfortable with.
