The Place to Study

There are quite a few things to do as we approach the end of the study part of the program. And to get things done, you need to be able to focus. The way I do this is to select a place dedicated to studies, and studies only. That way, whenever I go there, I get into “study mode”. On campus this spot happened to be second floor of the Student Union Building, or the Atrium as it’s called. Apart from all the space available and the peaceful environment, the opening hours are very generous; from early morning to 1AM during weekdays, and 11PM on weekends I think. Try it out; you might be able to get a whole lot of work done in no time!

The funny thing is I wrote this earlier today without posting. When I got over there to post and do some homework Andreas, Filip and Nicklas were actually sitting there! Somehow I feel less productive than usual..

The Student Union Building

Last week of studies, last week in New Paltz!

Saturday and only (five!!) whole days to go until we leave New Paltz and head for NYC for new experiences and internships!

Since it’s the last week of studies there’s a few things to do. Not only exams but also presentations and homework. Even though it’s going to be nice being finished with homework, exams etc. I think we’ll miss New Paltz in a few weeks with its’ nature and nice people. It’s going to be a big change moving into NYC but it’s a change that I think we are all up for!

At the moment a few of us are studying at the top of the Student Union Building, which is a really nice place to study actually. It feels a bit like a greenhouse but you really have a great view!

Campus at the end of September

Just 19 days and we will move to Manhattan!!!
We look forward to starting our internships and to live in the most exciting city in the world: New York City!!!
At the same time I am quite sure we are going to miss New Paltz, the Super8 Motel, Pasquale’s pizza, our evenings in P&G’s, our walks to go to school every day, and the university.
Considering that the campus is the place where we spent most of our time, I decided to post here few photos I took walking on campus.

Life on Campus – Arrival Week

There were an odd number of male students coming this fall and, because of that, one of us got the opportunity to stay in a dorm on campus. As things turned out, that person is me.

So I thought I might give you my, slightly different, point of view of campus life and the experiences associated with our stay here in New Paltz.

Upon arrival one of the first persons i met was named Samba. A while later I realised he was going to be my roommate for the following months. He’s a good guy and he loves to cook, lucky me!
