Are you using German these days? I am currently a freshman at the University of Oregon and taking German courses. I plan to study abroad my Junior year in Germany.
Interesting/Fond/Funny memory from your time at our school: One of my favorite memories was traveling to Germany with many of my fellow classmates and living with a host family. It was such a great experience and I am very fortunate my mom was able to accompany me.
How did attending GSP/GIS influence your education/life/choices? I had the greatest experience at GSP! Not only did I create lasting memories and friendships, I also learned how to appreciate the German culture while developing into a mature, well-rounded individual.
Career Goals? With a degree focusing in Business and Design, I intend to work in Portland at one of the many athletic industries, whether it be Nike, Adidas, or Under Armour.
