My fondest memories from my time abroad are all with the people I met. They were what made the trip memorable and they are one of the main reasons I want to go back to Wollongong in the future.

I enjoyed the outings and day-trips coordinated by the dorm I stayed in, International House. There were several at the beginning of the year that helped me meet other students and experience some of the cool things Wollongong had to offer.

I learned to research the university in advance to see exactly what it has to offer. Get involved with clubs and activities.
My best advice is to plan out exactly what you want to gain from the experience, and go from there. You can't do it all. So if you want to travel, plan ahead. If you are someone like me who is there to study and enjoy the local scene, then go in with an open mind. You can only get out of it what you take in.
