MHS welcomes a large group of exchange students. This year we have 16 foreign friends representing nine different countries.

All of them already love America and are stoked to be here. Although they like it, Hannah Neudecker said, “I miss the healthy food from Austria. The majority of the foods here are really unhealthy.”

Of course everyone agreed to love the U.S so far but, there were a few different opinions over our society. Lisa Mensing said, “just the way people treat each other is so different. When you meet someone new in Germany they’re mostly polite but not really nice; very cold and distant. Here, everyone is so nice and friendly.”

In addition to different opinions, Mareike misses sausages from Germany and Claudio misses pasta.
