Seth Huntington headed to Germany on SLSSC scholarship

Seth Huntington, a Sophomore German major at UMSL, will study abroad in Germany supported by a St. Louis-Stuttgart Sister Cities Language Immersion Scholarship that he was awarded in February at the 2015 Winter Ball.  The scholarship will allow him to attend an immersion program at the Goethe-Institute in Schwäbisch Hall, Germany. The four-week program begins in August 2015 and requires him to speak German and only German during his stay.  The St. Louis native grew up in Overland, in north St. Louis County, and hasn’t ever been to Germany.

“It’s such an extraordinary opportunity for him,” said Larry Marsh, coordinator of the German Culture Center at UMSL.  When Huntington’s not in class, he’s assisting at the center.  “Seth has an excellent ear and pronunciation for the language,” Marsh said.  It was something that Marsh immediately admired about Huntington and one of the many reasons he took him on as his assistant.

After Seth completes the language immersion program, he will stay in Germany to continue his study abroad for a full year. He plans on attending Leipzig University and will continue to complete upper-level coursework for his major, including a couple of literature courses. He intends to graduate from UMSL in May 2016.
