This weekend ESPNU will be in town to cover the Volunteers’ game against Western Carolina, but the game is not the only undertaking the sports station will be involved with while on Rocky Top.

Eric Gedenk went to Germany to study post-WWII press systems, but came home having learned something else, too: There’s value in slowing down and appreciating the small things in life. Gedenk, of Chicago, Illinois, is a senior pursuing a double major in German and journalism and electronic media. He was in Germany from May 8 to May 26. Gedenk got the traveling bug his freshman year after he stumbled onto the opportunity to study abroad in Prague, Czech Republic. So this past spring, when his German professor, Maria Stehle, announced an interdisciplinary course about Berlin culminating with a trip at the end of the semester, Gedenk e-mailed her back that same day.
