My first year at university is already 13 long years ago. That means 13 years in Osnabrück! I don’t remember much of this whirlwind of my first twelve months here. But it changed me … a lot. I had to learn to be responsable for myself. I moved flats two times – I lived the first time ever on my own. I met a wonderful men, who stayed in my life for many years. This first year is incredible fascinating and has an enormous importance in life. The New York Times knows this as well and asked last September twelve students across colleges to have their pictures taken. Two semesters later, they came back for another picture. Their changes are remarkably – as are their individual stories.
I wish you a wonderful weekend (I will be in Vienna!) with a lot of fascinating and remarkable experiences!
