Study abroad in Freiburg, the sunniest and warmest city in Germany. It’s easy to take advantage of the sunshine and hike up to the Schlossberg tower for the view or explore the many Black Forest trails that are easily accessible. Immerse yourself in the vibrant student culture of this friendly and welcoming city, where students are one sixth of the population.
It is impossible not to fall in love with Freiburg and its curving cobblestone streets, medieval architecture, and beautiful cathedral. With its progressive mindset and small-town provincial charm, the city shows a remarkable commitment to the environment and sustainability and is small enough to feel like home. Ready to perfect your German language skills or study sustainability in Germany’s environmental capital? Freiburg is the place for you.

This past Monday, I finally finished my mid-term exams. This mid-term period caused me stress not in the sense that it was challenging but rather because I had limited time to prepare for them due to frequent traveling. The European Union program is centered around travelling throughout Europe, allowing students to learn outside of the classroom.
For some students, volunteering while studying abroad may not be possible because of limited time in their schedules or they prefer to use their spare time to travel with friends on the weekends. Prior to coming to Freiburg, volunteering was not on my list of things to do while abroad. If you recall from my first blog post, the only goal I had in mind to achieve while abroad was to visit the Anne Frank Museum and the Eiffel Tower.
February goes by quickly for everyone by nature of it being the shortest month of the year, but this February has gone by especially quickly for me because of all the traveling that I’ve been doing. It’s during times like these, when I’m almost halfway done with the semester even when it simultaneously feels as if I’ve just arrived here, that I tend to write down memories and events that I don’t want to forget.
