Left: We had a large group over in Leoben during Spring 2014.  This is most of the group that was there.  It was such a great study abroad experience and it’s so nice coming back to Golden and having friends abroad while also being close with the group that we went over with.  Eric Brown, Kyle Petry, James Sailer, Alexandra Truby, Alyse White, and Collin Leitko.  

Right: This is the entrance to the main building at MU Leoben.  It says, “Gluck auf” above the door; this is the traditional Austrian and German greeting for miners where they wish each other luck.  


Left: Zach and Alyse went to Bratislava, Slovakia with some of their study abroad friends from the university. 

Right: The Grüner See is located about an hour away from Leoben by train and is such an interesting place to visit.  During the winter this area is a park and then the area fills up with spring snow melt to make a lake! 


Left: We participated in the Festival of Nations event in the town square.  It was a great event and a ton of people came out to try the different food.  Alyse and Zach cooked and they made chili and sloppy joes.  

Right: In Leoben, one of our favorite activities was to make dinner with our friends.  It was a great way to hang out and get to know people better.  Here, Alyse, Collin, and Eric are having dinner with Manuel (from Spain), while watching the Olympics.  

This is a view of the Austrian countryside.
