Flensburg, In Her Own Words
by Alyssa Kennamer '13
"I met one of my flatmates, Elisa, after Easter Break upon arriving in Flensburg. She asked me where I'm from, and I said the usual -- grew up in Oklahoma, but study in Illinois. She responds, 'I've always wanted to go to Illinois!' I was a bit taken aback by her enthusiasm and then said, 'Oh yeah, Chicago!' She said, 'No, Galesburg.'
At this point I was floored. I learned that she had applied to study at Knox. Complete coincidence that I would be placed in an apartment living situation with a prospective Knox student. Even better that we became fast friends.
But that's probably the best part about choosing to study in Flensburg -- that in doing so, you continue to foster this growing partnership between Universität Flensburg and Knox College. You're beginning to witness the traces that each institution is leaving on the students, the faculty, the place."
