WITC students bound for Germany
(4/8/10): Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College is sending
six students to Frankfurt, Germany, from May 26 to June 9 in reciprocation for
the students who visited WITC from Germany last fall. Three students from the
New Richmond campus include Nathan Spike, Loren Goldstein and Claudia Berggren.
And three students from WITC-Ashland are Shauna Ruud, Kerri Bergquist and
Christina Oksiuta. Accompanying the students are Lenore Knock, dean of students,
and instructor Julie Schaefer, both at WITC-New Richmond.
Recently, the students recorded their thoughts about the
link to hear what they had to say.
The WITC students have held various fundraisers to help
offset the cost of their two weeks in Germany. Earlier the New Richmond campus
held a “whipped cream pie in the face” contest that produced more than $800 in
Living accommodations for the six students traveling to Frankfurt are with the
students and instructors who visited WITC last fall.
“After showing our German guests around last fall, our students are eager to
find out what it’s like to be a college student in their country,” says Knock.
“Now they’re busy filling out the requisite paperwork for passports, insurance
and emergency information.”
