The latest 2004 info about this year's Graz-Program. Nearly all of the students stayed in a residence hall: most in the Ghega-Gasse 9-19, some in the Wienerstrasse 58a. To see the location, click on the following link and then on the interactive 'Stadtplan', type in the address! If you would like to look at the course location: 'Pestalozzistrasse 17' (at the Grazbachgasse) and the DIG Office: 'Kalchberggasse 10'. Wohnheim Wienerstrasse (Kulturelle Info)
On Sunday July 11 at 8 PM, we met downtown, on a bench at the Eiserne Tor (a fountain at the beginning of the pedestrian zone (Fussgängerzone) 50 yards from the Jakominiplatz (all the buses and streetcars depart from there), and then went to the Irish Pub, a popular place among the Grazer, am Randes des Bermuda-Dreiecks.
Some of the highlights (Graz-Pictures) this summer included a tour of the university given by Barbara Schwab, a former teaching assistant at EMU, and by her father who is in charge of the library. The next event was a tour of Schencker, a shipping company in Graz that exports goods from DaimlerChrysler (Michigan) to MagnaSteyr, Steiermark. This visit was conducted by EMU Alumni Rachael Arney, a graduate from EMU's German Program who is now working for Schencker. To top off this insightful journey into the international/golbal business world, we were able to arrange a great tour of the Magna Drivetrain plant near Graz (pictures to follow!). Mr. Gert Weixler, the manager for Production/Productivity (after previous stints in Mexico and Atlanta), provided us with a humorous headphone-voiced, informative plant experience.
No to forget, visits to a soccer game by Sturm Graz (playing in the Austrian Bundesliga), to Vienna, and even Official and Unofficial Berlin (to take a look at Berlin pictures follow the link Summer 2004 Photos), as well as local wine tasting places. We got a taste of the wonderful Austrian Cuisine at lunch or dinner time, of the free International Graz Jazz Summer Concerts, right next to the Mur, a wonderful relative of Ypsilanti's Huron river.

1)Visit the EMU Study abroad web-site:
(download application forms right from the weblink below)
2)Visit the study abroad fairs at McKinney at EMU
3)Come to the Graz-Meetings: next meeting 'tba' (room will be posted on German bulletin board). For more info regarding financial aid: talk to students who were in Graz last year about how to come up with the money!

5) Talk to Financial Aid (they have a form on record for Graz students). Contact me, if you have any questions. Servus, Klaus
***Ideas for raising money, besides getting financial aid/ taking out a loan: sell pizza (make arrangements with a pizza chain) to family, friends,... or cookies; contact an Austrian or other company whether they might be interested in sponsoring you (any amount is good, will add up to help you reach your goal); ask around in your church whether people might be willing to help you a little bit; look for different types of scholarship* at the university, in the community, in professional organizations (Rotary, Women in Business,....).
*Scholarships: John Hubbard Scholarship, Möller Scholarship (More Info will come soon)

Previous programs:In the summer, students from EMU go over to Graz, Austria, to Austria's second largest city, with its many cafes, pubs etc, a great city. You can look at the pictures on our website. After an initial get-together in Graz on Sunday evenings, DIG-Courses begin on Mondays and last 6 weeks. Sunday evenings, we usually meet at the Fountain at the Eiserne Tor, and then go to a local restaurant, e.g. Restaurant Gösser Bräu, where Deutsch in Graz reserves a table for us.
*Take a look at the Graz pictures on these websites: The city of Graz.
or EMU in Graz.
*Take German courses in Graz, Austria and get EMU-credit (6-9 credit hrs). *It's great to start learning German in a German speaking country, so no matter what German level you are at - beginners or Intermediate etc. - you can participate, and it's so much more fun to learn the language in the country. If you have never taken any German courses, it's a wonderful way to get into the language and enjoy the many things Austria has to offer or travel to Germany (München: Hofbräuhaus etc) or Switzerland or even Prag. If you would like to find out more about the program, look at the web-addresses!
