I loved studying abroad in Heidelberg! Heidelberg is as quaint as a small town but as fun as a city. There is public transportation that is extremely simple and reliable and allows students to get around. Grocery stores, restaurants, and nightlife are all a short tram ride away from the European Study Center (ESC). Germany is also a centrally located country in Europe, travelling to other countries for the weekend is manageable and affordable. Melissa Lee, Fall semester student from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ)
