Lena German House Assitant Furman University

My name is Lena Potschka and I am the German Language House Assistant for this year!

I am from a relatively small town in Northern Germany called Cuxhaven. Many tourists spend their summers in my hometown and enjoy the weather and the beach.

In my free time I love to do sports, meet my friends and travel.

I already spent a year in the United States as an exchange student in my sophomore year of high school. Therefore, Furman was a great offer for me to spend another year in the USA.

I hope to meet a lot of new people and have a great experience!

I assist teaching the German classes and I am also responsible for the German activities on campus such as "Kaffestunde", German movie nights and tutoring.

If you ever have any questions just contact me!
