Tara Loeber '14

German Program

When I started out as a UDR during my sophomore year, all the previous UDRs had quit the program or graduated, and I was essentially left to figure it out from scratch with the faculty. I helped recruit Alexandra Patch, and together we have learned the ropes and developed very positive working relationships with the German Program faculty. In the face of a small program, we have worked hard to come up with interesting events in order to garner and maintain interest in German Studies, despite the fact that German is normally not a student's primary field. Alex and I have also worked on making sure the German UDR program continues productively after we graduate, which is not something that we experienced upon starting out. Over the last three years, I feel I have solidified myself as a solid team player, and also as a reliable resource for students making their way through the German Program.
