As an NC State Alum that transferred from LSU, I've been pulling for Rivers since he was signed. It would be awesome if he followed in his brother's footsteps and went to NC State. Rivers should geaux Wolfpack!...

More importantly, what is your objective of getting 3 degrees? The military isn't going to reward you for the extra effort and I doubt employers are going to give it much credence especially after you serve and enter the civilian work force years after earning the degrees.
With that in mind, I wo...

It depends on what you are into. Do you want to see historical sites, art, architecture, nature? How many days do you have? Your list included a bunch of large towns/cities which might get a bit redundant.
I've lived in Germany about 6 of the last 10 yrs.
I'd recommend Cologne/Koln, perhaps a ...

I always associated the seal w/ the nanny state/big gov't caring for the people. But living in Germany near the French border, I see this symbol all over the place.
