I was in a small town called Ulm, in Germany, just west of Munich for about 3 months.

What was the biggest challenge?
Definitely the language barrier. South Germany was the worst, very few people spoke English there. Also, getting a bank account, bus pass and even buying groceries on occasion was difficult.
From day one Omicron-Pi has strived to be number one. It has been a little over ten years since we first became a chapter.

The end of April and final exams brings summer into full swing. School is finally over (unless you're doing summer school - I know the pain), it's time to have fun! This summer was incredible for some of the brothers of Omicron-Pi. Many of us had the opportunity to travel to some great places such as Thailand, Australia, Vancouver and Hong Kong, just to name a few. One of our brothers is even currently biking across America to raise awareness for diabetes (shoutout to Matt Swain). Below is Brother Sadlo's take on his trip to Australia. Feel free to come by during rush if you want to hear some more cool stories from around the globe!...
