Hello everyone!

I'm an American, studied Computer Science in the US, and decided to come to St. Gallen to study Economics after graduating from college in the US. I've been here since around September, and am still getting the hang of how things work, figuring out a social life and meeting people, fun activities that don't cost an arm and a leg, etc.

Since I speak German, things haven't been too difficult, but there's still a lot to learn.

Re: Hello everyone!

Welcome zvalentiner. I grew up in St. Gallen but now live in Heidiland, and once in a while I roam the Great Lakes, where my Michigoose comes from.

Re: Hello everyone!

I'm originally from Minnesota, so I've adjusted quite well to the climate here. I went home over the holidays, and it actually got a bit warmer when I came back to St. Gallen.

Growing up in Minnesota is also how I learned German, since I went to a German language immersion camp in northern Minnesota when I was a kid, and it worked wonders.

Lucky that your german-schooling worked for you. I took over 10 years of German School in Ontario, and my german is absolute garbage! Brutal language for me to try and learn.

Welcome to the forum and check out some of the events---Good times for all.

Re: Hello everyone!

Welcome to the forum. I'm also a student, working on my year abroad in Wil, which is just 30mins from St Gallen. Hope you're enjoying yourself so far.

Cool! How do you like Wil? What kind of stuff is there to do there?

St. Gallen is nice so far, but I really haven't gotten out much yet, so there's still a lot that I'd like to do and see.
