NAME Jackson Andersen ’16

HOMETOWN Pembroke, Mass.

AREAS OF STUDY History major

WHERE HE’S STUDYING Univeristy of Bamberg, Germany

WHY HE CHOSE GERMANY “I began studying German at Holy Cross, and really enjoyed the classes. I knew I wanted to study abroad, and the College’s yearlong study abroad program appealed to me even before I arrived on campus.”

WHAT HE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “Getting to the point where I don’t need to use English to explain or understand words and concepts in German, or, more importantly, having those concepts explained to me.”

WHY HE’S BLOGGING “I don’t usually write things down because I tend to rely on my solid memory (which has been referred to as being photographic), so I am interested in how writing down my experiences will change my perception of them, as well as being open to sharing these experiences.”
