Hello, my name is Samantha Seely and I'm a junior Mass Communications and German double major, and I studied abroad in Vienna, Austria, and Marburg, Germany for a full year in 2018-2019! Studying abroad was an incredible experience, and it's an opportunity I hope many mores students can take advantage of! Through my time in Germany, I improved not just my language skills, but my general life skills, as well. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions! Whether they're about what a language immersion program is like, what it's like to be abroad for a year, what foods to try when you're abroad, or something else, I'd love to chat!
