Summer Peer Advisor:

Nick Callahan
BCA Marburg | Year 2015-2016

Nick is an Economics major with a German minor from Elizabethtown College. Because of his Irish and Danish heritage, Nick decided to study abroad in Europe to explore his family history during his junior year. Through BCA, Nick chose a semester program in Marburg, Germany; a central location where he could easily visit most of Europe from. After realizing his joy for the German language, Nick extended his stay a second semester to solidify his language skills and new friendships. At E-town, Nick spends his time conducting research for a community outreach service program that combats homelessness in Elizabethtown, and participates regularly in German club to maintain his newly acquired language skills. As a Peer Advisor for BCA, Nick looks forward to helping students take the opportunity to have an experience as moving as his!
