My Experience at MAC

My name is Matthias Pfeil and I am a german student who decided to study four terms overseas. I am glad that I have chosen Mount Aspiring College in Wanaka.

The main point for this decision was the mix of mountains, lakes and nature which makes Wanaka so special. Moreover the good reputation of the school and a good structured and fun environment was also important for me. MAC fully met my expectations. I lived with my host family, which could not have been better in Albert Town, close to the river, where I spent much time with my friends, floating down the river or jumping from the bridge. On hot days I also went swimming after school in the lake. I played many sports while being in Wanaka. I became a member of the tennis club, signed up with a gym and went skiing with friends.

If someone asked me about the best moment I remember, I would tell him about the night we went to the hotpool in Albert Town. We watched the amazing evening sky and we counted the many shooting stars that night. From the very beginning I very much appreciated the open heartedness of the staff and students at MAC. I always felt welcome and comfortable and I want to say thank you to everyone at MAC, who made this year so special for me.
