My first day at UBC...I have survived!

Hey everybody,
today was my very first day at University of British Columbia (UBC)!!! I was quite nervous, but it turned out to be a really cool first day. Although we had to prepare and present our first assignment already today, it was more the introduction kind of day. If you compare it to Germany, the professors over here seem to be quite relaxed and easy-going. Let's see, how it will shape up for the rest of the week...
Regarding my search for the 'perfect' shared apartment or house, I wasn't really successful yet... so please continue to keep fingers crossed!
By the way, these are (were) my German roommates. Unfortunately, Juliane left last Sunday to go to Indonesia.











Guess what we did?? Exactly, we went shopping :-)  

Thanks for all your comments! Sorry for being so slow in answering all your eMails... 

Cheers alena

I am glad to hear that you are well and that the UBC was not as "bad" as you thought!

Sounds great! But don't hang out with weird Germans too much... ;)
I guess the Canadian universities are very much like the American ones - so get used to tons and tons of papers you will have to write. Uhh, and also those really weird mid terms... never understood why they only had multiple choice tests. Soooo foregt about liberal and independet studying.. ;)

Cheers
