Samuel Haines

I choose Valpo... 

because of its unique German International Engineering Program (VIEP).

Electrical Engineering and German

Sam Haines has been a part of VIEP-German since he arrived as a freshman student. With a double major in Electrical Engineering and German and a passion for soccer, what better place to spend a year of study and work than Germany? Sam lived for several years near Freising, Germany, with his family and can't wait to return. Maybe a cooperative-education placement with Texas Instruments awaits him there?

"The German Department has been really helpful. They want you to be the best you can be. I have learned something new in each one of my classes. With the way each class is taught, I've never felt overwhelmed or confused. Valpo also has been a great athletic and academic fit for me; I made a great decision picking Valparaiso University."
