"Studying Abroad at the Hochschule Darmstadt was so much more than what the limitations of pen and paper can breach. I was enveloped in the German way of life, while making life long friends from the four corners of the earth. The university gave me the technical skills I needed for my career, and the city gave me the skills I needed for life. No matter how much red tape one may cross, in the end it is always worth it."
