Ben and Erik's Paris and Germany Photo Gallery
Well our stint in Europe has finally reached its end. In our last week
we spent what seemed like half of our time on trains traveling from city
to city. We started out in Amsterdam, where we spent our time walking
around the canals and exploring the city as well as some time in what
has to be one of the nicer zoos there is. The rainforest building has no
dividers between you and the animals, meaning there are monkeys
literally walking around your feet!
From there we headed to Kiel, Germany, where we met up
with fellow teammate Moritz Ackerhans, who showed us around his city.
His mom was nice enough to provide us with our first home cooked meal in
about two and a half weeks, and it was absolutely delicious. Next, we
took the 8 hour train ride South to Augsburg (also in Germany) to visit
another teammate, freshman Jan Julicher. He showed us what a real
Bavarian meal is like at a traditional restaurant near his house (a
picture of the meal is included). It was one of the most intimidating,
impressive, and filling dinners I've ever eaten. He also took us on a
tour of a local brewery, which was a very cool experience. After
spending the night, we took yet another train to a town called Wurzburg
where got to see our friend Maximillian Mayer, whom we hadn't seen for
far too long. Our time with Max was great and was capped off by another
delicious meal, prepared by Mrs. Mayer herself.
Our last night in Europe was spent where it all
began, Paris. We stayed in a hostel and caught up on some much needed
sleep before waking up at 5 a.m. to catch our flight back to Chicago. All
in all, this trip has been an eye opening and incredible experience for
both of us. It is unfortunate that it has come to a close but we are
both looking forward to getting home for Christmas and spending time
To give a broader view of our trip we've included
several photos taken throughout our time in Europe. Happy holidays to
all, and we look forward to seeing everybody after break!

Hello Women's Basketball Fans!
Since the last time checking in I have checked in we have had a lot going on in Chicago!
The week is coming to a close, and it couldn't have gone any faster. We had another successful and exciting several days, where we got to see even more amazing parts of France. Wednesday
we traveled to Sciences Po, a renowned school located in Paris, where
we ran into our old friend and DePaul alum Selma, who graduated last
year after playing women's tennis. We got to catch up with Selma, have lunch with some students, and take a tour of her new school.
Later in the week we got to share a few more experiences. Friday we went to the Taittinger Champagne cellars, located East of Paris in a town called Reims. We witnessed the years of work put into producing a single bottle of Champagne, and it's really pretty incredible.
Finally, on Saturday, the class portion of our trip came to a close. A small group of us went to Versailles to check out the massive castle and gardens. We even brought some lunch and ate out in the courtyard. That evening we had our final meal as a group at the oldest restaurant in Paris, La Petit Chaise. It was spectacular; I never knew food could taste so good.
sad to be leaving Paris, but the two of us are now on our way to meet
up with our teammates in Germany and see how they live over here. Don't worry, we'll be coming back with lots of pictures.

From late last week, DePaul golfers Ben Westley and Erik Peterson continue their studies in France while taking in as many sites as possible. They are in Paris taking an International Business Seminar class through Dec. 11. The class is taught by Dr. Steve Kelly at DePaul and
Ben will check in periodically with updates on the events overseas.
Paris - Part Deux:
So our first week in Paris is coming to a close and it feels as though time is flying by too quickly. We're already halfway finished with the trip! It was not stop this week, with business visits every day and site-seeing during every other waking hour. Some of the businesses we saw included Carlson Wagonlit, Digitas, Veolia, and Publicis, which range in function from a massive business travel agency to a worldwide advertising holding company. The visits really gave us some interesting insights into how international businesses operate, and allowed a peek into what working for a large company is like.
Although it may be hard to believe, the business visits weren't the most exciting parts of the week. We went to some really cool sites and museums that were full of old artwork, statues and pieces of history. Probably the most famous pieces that we saw were the Mona Lisa and The Thinker. We also got to see Napoleon's tomb, which was one of the more impressive things we've seen on this trip. If you're not into the artwork, the buildings that they were inside of were impressive in their own right. It might literally take three days to walk around the Louvre and you still might not see everything.
More pictures to come in the future. We're looking forward to yet another busy and exciting week, including a trip up to the top of the famous Eiffel Tower. Until next time.

Hello Women's Basketball Fans!
It's been a little while since we've had a blog so I'll try to catch you guys up on what's been going on in Lincoln Park!
DePaul golf team members Ben Westley and Erik Peterson are currently taking a International Business Seminar class in Paris and will be there through Dec. 11. The class is taught by Dr. Steve Kelly at DePaul and Ben will check in periodically with updates on the events overseas.Day 1
Today we arrived in Paris after an excruciatingly long flight, only to realize we had an entire day ahead of us. After unloading our things at the hotel, we walked to the Seine River, which divides the city, and took a boat tour to see many of the city's cultural landmarks. This included the city's most popular destination, and our personal favorite, the Eiffel Tower, which stands as tall as the Hancock!
We spent the rest of the day wandering through the city streets which can be extremely confusing. Every block has enough restaurants to make your head spin, along with old-fashioned bookstores and cafes. Luckily, our professor used some local knowledge and we got to eat at a really nice restaurant with all of our classmates. Some of us even got to try some classic French escargot.
Both of us are looking forward to catching up on some sleep and getting rid of the jet lag. The next two weeks are going to be busy, with numerous business visits scheduled and more landmarks to visit. Also, can't wait to eat all of the bread and cheese Paris has to offer.
Signing out for now.
Ou Au Revoir,
Ben & Erik

several members of the DePaul track team participated in "Trick-Or-Treating
with Refugees," an event put on by the nonprofit refugee and immigrant services organization, RefugeeOne. Drew Edwards,
a junior on the track and field squad and the team's Captain's Council
representative, recapped the experience below.
The event was called "Trick-Or-Treating with Refugees,"
which is put on each year by RefugeeOne. The experience is oriented
towards giving recently resettled (within one-to-three years) refugees an
opportunity to take part in the marquee event of many Americans' childhoods in
For most of the kids, though, the concept is entirely
foreign. Over 80 kids showed up and used donated costumes to put together
something spooky, funny, or heroic to wear for the evening. The volunteers,
whom we made up about half of, helped in every step along the way and each took
between four and five kids through the neighborhood off of the Berwyn CTA Red
Line stop for about 90 minutes.
I think our group had a great experience. Aside from the
laughs of helping put together costumes and the blessings of working with kids
anytime, explaining the concept--walking up to a strangers door, saying
"trick-or-treat?", receiving candy, and then saying "thank you" and
moving on--is one of the greatest things in the world. Hearing a kid say
"I have too much candy, can we go back now?" is a concept foreign to
each of us [volunteers] and was humbling for our team.
Seeing the joy in each kid's face of experiencing their
first Halloween was truly something our group enjoyed. It had us swapping
stories the entire 'L' ride home and into the next day at practice.

I know this entry is a little late, but I wanted to share with our fans my trip to New York City for my first BIG EAST Conference Women's
Basketball Media Day this past year with Keisha Hampton. It was a trip that I
will never forget.
