About Jo


My name is Joanna Mueller and I am a junior at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. I am originally from Springfield, MA so I haven’t lived long term anywhere but the 413 area code. I am happy to share my adventure abroad with family, friends, prospective DIS students, and absolute strangers.

This Spring I am fortunate enough to be a student at DIS Study Abroad in Scandinavia. I am apart of the DIS Copenhagen program in København, Danmark. My focus within my American Studies major is Urban Studies and I am excited for the cross-cultural comparisons as I will explore the cities cities such as Copenhagen, Hamburg, Vienna, and Budapest. I will visit all of these cities for my core course: “The European Experience: Why Cities Matter“. I will be studying urban planning, architecture, and livability in this core course as well as in a  bike touring class and photography class. I will also be taking a Scandinavian education class and Danish language and culture class.

Feel free to contact me at anytime, I’d love to hear from you!

Venlig hilsen,
