"It was a gorgeous experience for me to live and study in Cologne. I really appreciate it and will always regard the time spend in Cologne as one of the most unforgettable and important part of my life. I have learned a lot in Cologne. And I am definitely sure that I will come back to Cologne one day and say 'Vielen Dank'."

“I am so thankful for my experience with the CGSP. Not only were my classes interesting and engaging, but my classmates and professors were wonderful. Being a part of the CGSP provided me with a community and family during my time in Cologne. The program gave me the opportunity to better experience Cologne and to visit other German and European cities. Because of the CGSP, I increased my knowledge of European and global affairs, improved my German, and made life-long friends from around the globe. “
