A lonely experience?? Best years of my life!![/quote]
I don’t know how brit colleges are, but France has nothing to do with US campus for example. I haven’t been to the uni the first two years, I was in prepschool. I came in the last year of licence, every students knew each other, at least, lots of groups were already made. Masters is pretty different. But I like uni, don’t get me wrong.
But in France, at least, again, we are like 300 or more from the same departement for each promo (in Paris at least), you can’t know everybody. Yo’ure not wit the same person in seminars, so you might enjoy someone you only share one seminar with. Doesn’t help the friends connection. Plus semianrs are usually regular lessons, not much form of participation, work groups and all. Everybody got to be individual. That what I meant by “lonely experience”.
Unlike highschool and so on, where you spend all your time with your classmates. Even at the uni when you have no seminar, you go back home, you don’t wait the next seminar in four hours with the same people.
