This past Friday was the orientation day for exchange students. It started with a bottle of local red wine at our free lunch but then ended with a free tote bag full of brochures and papers.
For those of you who don’t know, I haven’t even started real classes. The first day of class is the February 18, but even then isn’t the real first day of class. For the French (as a foreign language) classes, we will be told on Monday after an interview with a professor, what classes we are allowed to take. For the regular university classes, the first day of class is basically an info session on the class. These classes are just two hours once a week. (If you’re feeling any jealousy, stop right there because I need to take SIX classes total.) We have three weeks to decide our schedule for these classes too. It’s been almost three months since I’ve been in classes so hopefully I remember how to study.
