ESC Heidelberg Ambassador

My favorite course that I took at the ESC was Experiential Learning. This class allowed us to travel to multiple parts of Germany and engage in a wide variety of cultural experiences such as the city of Berlin, Schwetzingen Palace, the Mercedes-Benz Museum, the Heidelberg Castle, as well as much more. The class required students to research the places before we visited, which helped to prepare us. The most helpful part was the requirement to keep a journal with weekly entries. These entries are great to look back on to see how much I have accomplished during my abroad and how I was feeling at the time.
