Studying in Bowling Green, Ohio:
my personal diary page

Last & final update: November 6, 1999

Usage counter:

There is a NEW BG diary page, the next generation (tm) prospers... :-)
...and there is actually a second one: Werner's BG page!


On this page I collect material related to my year in Bowling Green; by now there are only some pictures available. If you have stuff to share (photos, URLs, comments, ...) feel free to contact me!


I attend the Graduate College of Bowling Green State University. My major is Computer Science. The Computer Science department is located in Hayes Hall. I have an assistantship with the German Department, located in Shatzel Hall, where I do database programming for Klaus Schmidt's Middle-high German database.

Here is my class schedule.
