Eric Strand is on exchange at Herlufsholm in Denmark

Summed up in a few words, my exchange has been incredibly awesome! This has truly been one of the best experiences of my life.  I am so glad I had the chance to do it! Herlufsholm was founded in 1565 and because of that there are SO many little traditions and annual events that it is sometimes a bit overwhelming, but it is a great change for a while and something wonderful to be a part of!

Being a part of boarding life is also a huge change for me, but I have grown to really like it. All the boarders have study rooms for when lål (study periods) are in session, but we all sleep together in a communal room with many many beds. The windows are ALWAYS open in this room (another little Herluf tradition) even when it is below freezing in the winter. Luckily I have had pretty good weather so far, with the exception of several large thunderstorms. Carl Schnor is doing great and he sends his best wishes to Athenian as well!
