Student Profile - Michael Lu
"Berlin was indeed quite the epitome of diversity. From each district boasting its own unique feature-- Neukölln as the immigrant hub, Dahlem as the wealthy suburbs, Kreuzberg as the party go-to-- to Asian restaurants and Turkish döner stands lining the streets, Berlin was everything I imagined and more."
"Berlin is both a political and artistic hotspot, so I often had the opportunity to practically explore my fields. There was always something going on that I wanted to see."
"Since the course selection in Berlin is limited compared to the dizzying expanse of ExploreCourses, it's a great chance to dive into topics which may not otherwise dominate your schedule and to discuss them with classmates from a wide range of backgrounds."
