I really enjoyed going to college for different reasons. I got to learn so much from my courses but also from my teachers and the people I met. I liked having most of my classes in English. College has been such an amazing experience as I got to study what I love which is politics and international relations.
My university was very far from home (2 hours of train) and I had to go everyday. Also the main courses were lasting 3-4 hours long. I couldn't focus for that entire time because i suffer of anemia which makes me sleep or lose my focus during the courses. However the teachers were great.
The experience at UPEC University was cool and challenging. I discovered a new environment and worked on several projects and courses.
