Going Home

It is finally time to go home. I am really excited. I don’t think I’m as homesick as some, but I am excited to see my family and to sleep in my own bed. No offense to those I traveled with, I am just sick of you guys. We have been together for a tad […]

Finals at Jacobs

This week is finals week and it’s a bit stressful. I will probably just end up on a rant about my one class, Bioprocess Engineering. They do things a bit differently here at Jacobs. At Lafayette they give you many chances, in most classes, to bump up your grade, whether it’s with problem sets, quizzes, […]

Russia Orientation

Our last excursion as a class was to St. Petersburg, Russia. I’m really happy we went. It’s a whole other world out there. We got a lot of Western Europe; it was time for some Eastern Europe. I think people in the States are so against Russia and Communism; we are taught to fear both. […]

To follow up with my post about blind booking, I might as well let you know how it went. Stuttgart is the capital of Baden-Württemberg (a state within Germany). The city is in a valley between hills and hills covered in vineyards. It’s actually in a really beautiful location. Anyways, because we did blind booking […]

Blind Booking

tagged with , , ,

I know that Lafayette had theirs ages ago… but this week is Jacobs’ Spring Break. Casey and I decided to do blind booking. It’s a really neat idea. It’s like roulette with airplane tickets. It’s with German Wings and they give you a list of places that you could possibly get and you only know where […]

Helgoland

Our excursions seem to be more frequent now. It’s a little annoying sometimes because we miss a lot of classes and then have to make up classes the week after. The price you pay for traveling. For this trip, however, we left on a Friday so we didn’t miss any classes. Helgoland is Germany’s only […]

Brussels

I love the French language. I think my ears sighed when they heard French as we walked off the bus in Brussels. German is just so harsh! Our second excursion was to Brussels, Belgium. It’s a city with Dutch and French as its main languages. We had European Union tours and talks for a majority […]

Not a Lazy Semester

posted in Lisa Goulding

tagged with , , , ,

When I tell people that I’m studying abroad they think that this is a lazy semester, a semester of less difficult and fewer classes. Lafayette does a good job with sending engineers abroad so we don’t get behind in classes or have to pile up classes before hand. I did have to organize my schedule […]

Berlin

Our first excursion as a group was to Berlin on the 13th of March. We took a bus from Bremen to Berlin, which was a lengthy five hours. I think everyone slept most of the way because we left at 7 in the morning. When we arrived it was around noon so we got off […]

Good morning, Lafayette! I wasn’t sure how to start this blog because I’m not starting from the beginning. I know I posted about my weekend in the last one but in this post I’ll just introduce where we are studying and living. The university is called Jacobs (pronounced yacobs) University, located in Bremen, Germany.  It […]
