Katharina Lange - Belgium

Katharina Lange is from Belgium. She came to GRCC in the fall of 2011 for her Gap year. "I'm using this time to figure out what I want to do," she said. "Interlanguage recommended GRCC to me. They said it was the best community college with the most caring and helpful faculty and staff."

"I am really happy about my decision to come here.  I am maturing a lot. I am learning how to cook and clean.  My Mom used to do all those things for me. Although I miss everyone back home, sometimes it's good not to have your family and close friends around so that you learn how to make your own decisions in life."

Katharina lives at Campus Corner Apartments. She has three roommates - two from South Korea and one American.  "I have my own room so I can have private time too."

Katharina loves participating in Student Life activities whenever she gets a chance. "My favorite activities so far, were the indoor skydiving adventure and the ski trip to Whistler."

Katharina is now considering a degree in Business.  One of the advisors gave her a Career Assessment test and her results showed an aptitude for Business.  She speaks German, Dutch, English, a little French, and is now studying Spanish.  She hopes to one day put all these languages to use in her future career.
