We loan because...
Dr. Bicknese was the co-founder and first director of our Junior Year Abroad program, 1963-64, Philipps-Universitat, Marburg, Germany. The program still exists, 50 years later. Dr. Bicknese created something of value to many and we honor him.

About us
We were about 20 years old in 1963 when we went to live and study for a year at a German university. Some of us were really lost at first, but we learned a lot and the group really bonded. We're having a 50th reunion this week!

Location: Marburg, Lahn, Germany
