Exchange & Study Abroad

BS Diplomacy Military Studies

University of Mannheim Spring 2017

Given the opportunity to study abroad during my time at HPU was an enriching, rewarding, and unforgettable experience.  From the cultural intricacies of food, language, and daily life, to extensive travels around Europe was a dream come true. The German way of life is one of a kind and cannot be compared so easily. The boat load of greasy food and liters of beer do not begin to describe this experience.The people are kind and patient, the atmosphere is warm and busy (except on Sundays….), and the history extensive! My experience in Germany and more specifically Mannheim was beneficial because it was the chance of a lifetime. Without a doubt, I would do it again and recommend to all who haven't dared consider studying abroad to reconsider. You'll have a long lasting regret if you decide against it. My grandfather once told me: “Personal growth does not occur until you step out of your comfort zone.” So find the courage, explore, and have fun.

Viel Glück und Auf Wiedersehen,

Billy Mayer
