Student Profile: Noah
Noah Finegan

I choose Valpo…

because at Valpo, I can immerse myself in the German culture without ever leaving the country!

German major, English minor

Nobody has as much energy and love for all things German as German major, Noah Finegan! He is the first to meet the exchange students from Germany, shows up at every German Club event, and keeps everyone laughing. Noah has a serious side too; he loves writing and the humanities, choral singing, and is considering a career in teaching. We wonder whether his future students will be taller than the 2nd and 3rd-graders he teaches now in the Kinder lernen Deutsch program!


“Valpo’s German department has far exceeded all of my expectations! Not only are the professors very passionate about what they are teaching, but they make sure that there are plenty of German cultural events available to students on campus."
