Austin, the Austrian Adventurer
My attention was first drawn by the soccer program, so I decided to visit. Once I visited, the close-knit community and friendliness of everyone on campus set Clarke apart from all the rest.
What sets Clarke apart?
Everyone here is more than just a number. Whether it's a faculty member or a fellow student, it is good to know that everyone around you is interested in you as a person.
What made you interested in studying overseas?
I've been overseas several times before and traveling has always been an interest of mine. Coming to Clarke, I knew that at some point I would like to study abroad to experience more of the world.
How (why) did you decide on Austria?
Having a German mother, I had a decent background in the German language, but never had the chance to actually take courses in it. The opportunity to do so was extremely exciting - and to add to it, I was in Vienna, Austria, which is one of the cultural hubs of the world.
What was your most favorite thing you did while overseas?
Studying the German language was a lot of fun, and the numerous opportunities to travel and experience so many different European cultures and countries that most people only dream about was obviously a once in a lifetime experience.
