Andrew Forseth, a junior in the University of Cincinnati's No. 1 ranked industrial design program in the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP), is currently studying abroad at the respected industrial design program at the Bergische Universitat Wuppertal in Wuppertal, Germany.

Forseth, of West Linn, Ore., is blogging about his experiences. Within the first week, he wrote, "I am trying to pick up the language as quickly as I can. Each night I spend some time at my computer memorizing phrases I think will be useful, and I try to speak German in town as much as I can. Things are beginning to settle into place. I am familiar with the bus routes to and from the university. I am meeting more people from my semester every day, and I am getting better sleep as the jet lag is finally wearing off."
