​So far my time at Iasi, I had a good experience. Although I noticed one thing, that Romanian students​ where a bit shy in talking with the international students. But after day two it really picked up and we had lots of conversations with them. I think maybe this is something to do with the exposure to other cultures in Romania.

​At the cofident project I was kinda shocked that the proffesors,etc. have their own stairs and toiletts which are not allowed to been used by the students. Even though they were not really geografically separeted​

​When I studied in Mexico I noticed that in general life on campus was completely different than in Germany. The Mexican students literally lived on campus. This was encouraged by providing a huge sport offer and sport amazing facilities. Restaurants, conference rooms, cafes and parcs. ​

​In Iasi i noticed that people seem to take more contact than people in Finland do. Its refresting and cool to see how people are communicating more even in the start and making more effort. In Finland it depends a lot but many people are "slowly warming" and more reserved that it tooks more time to get to known with each other.  Luckily thats not clearly the case with all finns either.

In Mexico, I noticed that the Mexican students on campus do a lot of sports classes at the university and generally spend a lot of time on campus. The university offers a large program of different sports and almost everyone does something. In Germany, I have the feeling that people are happy when they can go home and don't have to spend more time on campus. ​

During the week in Iasi, I had the impression that the relations between the students and the professors seemed extremely friendly and without complex. The way of exchanging between them was simple which disturbed me a little at the beginning (I was not sure that it was the professors but more of the student referents). In France, a barrier is set up very early on between teachers and students.

In Germany, students are very free in the way that they drink without any worries in front of the faculty, which surprised me a lot, in Romania this is completely forbidden.​

​I have experience staying in a student dorm in both Germany and Croatia. In Croatia, just like in Romania, it is common that 2 students get to share a room, while in Germany I got to have my own room with kitchen and bathroom for one semester, and one semester where I had my own room but was sharing a bathroom and kitchen with 3 other students. At the same time both the campus in Croatia and Romania had security guards and rules about letting other people in, whereas in Germany there was nothing of this sort. While studying in South Korea, I did not leave in a student dorm but I heard from other colleagues that were doing so that it was very similar to how students live in a dorm in Romania or Croatia.​

During Covid, a face mask was a must in Finnish schools and other public places. However, in Sweden, pretty much no one used masks during Covid. Most people looked at me like I was crazy when I used one.

Definitely, when I was in Iasi people would always smile and greet you when they met you. In Finland this doesn't happen sometimes even if you knew the person. Romanian people were also a lot more open and welcoming although at first they seemed a bit reserved which reminded me of Finns. As for rules in the campus, I didn't notice anything too different during my time there.​

Upon my first time living overseas in the Bahamas, I noticed that the students liked to fun and frolick. Coming from a reserved household, it was an eye-opener for me to notice that studying was not the most important thing for ​the other students, but rather the experience of living on campus.

​When in Germany with an Erasmus Project, I noticed that the University we went to was bigger than ours in Iasi. What I found interesting is that they had a better put-together campus, where I noticed that students ejoyed spending their time, they had a nice cafeteria with sufficient food choices, a cafe, they played games in the yard or studied in their well-equipped library.

​I haven't experienced anything like it because I haven't travelled yet, but I believe that everybody will adjust to the rules in place and that there won't be any problems.​

When I studied in NY (for a month), there was nothing that really shocked me. Something that confused me was their schedule, for Americans it is very common to have dinner at 5 pm, and at that time I had the habit of having a snack and not having dinner.
