Course recommendations
The one really bad thing about this program is it is entirely with Americans. They offer a single class with German students and it is taught in English.

Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
Their student housing is amazing! It is nothing like American university dorms. They are actual apartments with very large bedrooms. Renting an apartment on your own is too expensive and a major hassle.
