Overall Experience
June 04, 2017 Living In Stockholm
How to live in someone else's house, become a presence in their family, how to be alone and navigate and trust myself to get places and make things happen. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with DIS Stockholm: Semester
I had an opportunity to meet incredible people, especially because the Stockholm program was so small, and to explore Sweden and Denmark as my homes away from home. It was a very worthwhile experience. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

I learned about how Americans are viewed on a global scale. So interesting to hear the Scandinavian's impressions of Americans. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was COMPLETELY worthwhile. I believe studying abroad should be something every undergraduate student embarks on. As a result, I consider myself to be a citizen of the world. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

This merit-based award honors a beloved former DIS faculty member, Jacob Buksti, who passed away in 2016. Jacob built a strong legacy in modern Danish politics and made a deep impact on the hundreds of DIS students he taught from 2003 to 2016. Jacob served the Danish Social Democratic Party as a parliamentarian, party spokesperson, and Minister of Transportation during an impressive political career, and he was deeply devoted to sharing his work and passion with U.S. students at DIS. He loved being a politician and, even more than the theories and policy study that fueled his coursework, was passionate about the living, breathing game of European domestic and international politics.
