F.U.N At HKUST

Being involved on campus helps you to stay active and meet new people. Even though I am only here for a semester, they encourage all exchange students to join clubs and organizations for a semester to get a glimpse of what student life is like at HKUST. There are so many clubs that exchange students ...

The World Together at Clarke Quay

Fall season is just round the corner and I’m sure that the trees on Drexel’s campus are getting ready switching to yellow. NTU trees, on the opposite point of the globe, are a little too boastful and refuse to change color no matter what time of the year it is. There are no seasons in ...

It’s a wonderfully chaotic time consumed with running around campus completing random University requirements for enrollment. However, this is also an incredibly lucrative time to make some ...

#CHAAAARGE: paintball & rafting near the border

SNU Buddy, a group of awesome people, was only able to take 99 people to the paintball and rafting event. Because we have about 500 people total, we had to register by commenting on a signup post on Facebook. Nick (Exchange, Australia), Sandon (Exchange, Australia), and I met up together to make sure that all ...
