Travel has never been difficult for sophomore Lucca Wolter, an exchange student from Germany, as he has been to the United States numerous times including trips to California, Arizona, and Michigan.

“A lot of things are different from back home: the structure of the buildings, the school, the city, the people, and the food,” Wolter said. “Everyone is super nice, so it made the transition easy.”

One of the new things Wolter has experienced are Friday night football games.

“I did attend the Homecoming football game. I’ve watched (football) back in Germany, but it is not as big in Germany as it is here,” Wolter said.

Back home, Wolter is a lifeguard and also plays hand ball, which is the concept of soccer but using one’s hands.

Another difference between his home country and America is the food, Wolter said.

While he prefers his homeland food, American cuisine is a favorite.

“I have not had the experience where I do not like a food while being here, but I do miss the foods back home, such as the bratwursts and schnitzel,” Wolter said.

Along with experiencing the American culture, he said he would like to become an English teacher for students back in Germany.

“While being here, I have learned new words and my pronunciation has improved,” Wolter said. “I would like to become an English teacher because I like working with teenagers and helping them learn the language.”
