Mel is happy to be this year's German House director. She comes from the beautiful city of Münster in Germany. She is a senior psychology major at the University of Witten/Herdecke, located in the heart of the Ruhr area. When she's not studying or working, you will usually find her outside in nature doing all kinds of outdoorsy things, like camping and snowboarding. She's a big fan of the German and American traditions and enjoys good hamburgers or Weisswurst with Sauerkraut. Her goal, while in Sewanee, is to make new friends and help create mutual understanding and introduce some of her favorite German traditions and holidays.
