Hey, my name is Sam Steinmetz and welcome to my blog! I’m a business student in the College of Business Administration here at Pitt and am intending to study finance and economics. I am from a suburb of Philadelphia called Bryn Mawr (the best cheesesteak is made at John’s Roast Pork in South Philly). Some facts about me are: I’m a big sports fan, I won my middle school’s geography bee, and I am a descendant of Nathan from Nathan’s Famous Hotdogs.
I chose this program because I think that it will be a great way to get a feel for studying abroad while also being a great experience. I’m a quarter German, so it will be extra exciting to visit for the first time. I’m really looking forward to all of the events we have planned especially the cultural visits. I’m really excited for the nine-hour layover in Newark, but even more excited to get to know everyone and have fun in Augsburg!
