Future Physician Finds Learning Opportunity in Germany

Evan Harpster (’12), a biology and German major from Fremont, Neb., has earned a Fulbright scholarship, which will allow him to teach English in Germany. Harpster’s interest in Germany stems from his family heritage and the long tradition of hosting German relatives in his family’s home. He studied in Germany his sophomore year at NWU.

“My intention of studying biology has always been to… go to medical school and become a physician,” said Harpster. “My Fulbright application was based around this goal and the fact that teaching in Germany will improve my communication skills and help me become a physician capable of forming quality doctor-patient relationships, which are so crucial to quality health care.”

Harpster is the 43rd Nebraska Wesleyan student to receive a Fulbright scholarship.
