A tender but insightful true history of what makes the alumni of the University of Maryland, Munich Campus so special. This sequel to Bavarian Crème continues to be occasionally outrageous, sometimes hilarious, but always entertaining. Like its (younger) sister campuses in Augsburg and Mannheim, UMMC was a magical place created under unique circumstances. In 2004, after a 54-year tradition, the last of these extraordinary two-year residential campuses will fade away into history. Everyone affiliated with the University of Maryland overseas can't help but to have come away from the experience uniquely tied to a special group like no other. These are some of their stories.
Circe Olson Woessner, born and raised overseas, attended the University of Maryland, Munich Campus (UMMC) from 1979-1981. It was much later, after transferring to a stateside "traditional" four-year college, that she realized that her experiences at Munich had enriched her Weltanschauung more than any other college could hope to.
