Study Abroad in Germany
D-Term in Berlin
During D-term twenty NCC students took part in a 17-day D-term study-abroad program in Berlin, Germany. All participants flew together from Chicago's O'Hare airport and landed at Tegel in Berlin, and stayed at a comfortable hotel in the heart of Berlin near the world famous Kurfürstendamm shopping street. Each day students went on official excursions to learn and ex perie nce first-hand German history. Points of interest and sites included the Altstadt, Potsdamer Platz, the New Synagogue, official tours through the Reichstag and rotes Rathaus, visits in world class museums, and other interesting historical sites, such as air raid bunkers from World War II and an East German Stasi (secret police) prison. Students also had full-day excursions to Potsdam, the seat of the Prussian monarchy, and to the beautifully restored city, Dresden, the former seat of the monarchy of Saxony.
