After arriving and settling into the dorm, a new sense of ease was found. We did a lot of fun excursions and explored the city the first week we were there. We did a walking city tour, a lunch cruise, and even climbed to the top of a very tall and old church. Then, class began. The facilities were so nice, and the TAs were very helpful. Although the class was difficult and required a lot of time, it was the most I have ever probably learned in a class. We also were always able to save a day every weekend to go into the city! We made friends from all over the US that also in our program and often explored the city with them. Overall, was a great experience while we were there and I definitely learned a lot culturally and academically.
