I learned that organization of schedules and classes is almost entirely done and managed by the students, and it is a rather tenuous thing. American students are used to someone helping them choose and then that's that. At HSE, you must do everything yourself and on top of that, everything is subject to changes within a day's notice.

Certainly being dropped right in the middle of Moscow. It definitely feels like a second home to me now and that's a wonderful feeling. Russia is filled with so many wonderful and genuinely friendly people.

Being able to practice Russian on a daily basis and learn every day was one of the most important things I learned from this trip abroad. Not only did this allow me to learn about the Russian language, but I was able to delve into the finer aspects of Russian culture.
