Travel to Germany in the summer of 2020 and make a lifelong friend across the pond.  Live with them, go to school with them, travel with them, and chill with them.  Immerse yourself in German culture 24/7 for three weeks.  Come to our first GAPP 2020 meeting on Monday August 12 at 6pm in room CS 301.  If you do not want to leave Oak Ridge but still want to have the cultural experience you may want to host a German while they visit the states!  Everyone is welcome!  Questions?  See Frau Nebenfuehr or Mr. Kolodney.
