Departmental Student Advisor (DSA)

Daniel “Alex” Fahle

Hallo alle! Ich heiße Alex Fahle, ich bin Senior hier am K College, und ich bin der DSA 2021-22! 
Along with being a German major, I am also majoring in political science. Both German and political science are topics and fields that are of real interest for me. Apart from studying, I am also a musician, and play both violin and viola in the college’s orchestra. I also love to go on walks and hike in the wilderness. I hope one day to be able to go to Germany, and I am so excited for the school year ahead!
