Uniwersytet Jagielloński

Today marks the beginning of my courses at Uniwersytet Jagiellonski. It was a bit intimidating stepping into the school building, with so many different languages colliding in the air. I kind of felt like the new kid in high school, who transfered junior year. Completely disoriented.

I got a bit lost on my way to class, but made it to Sociology and Psychology of Terrorism just in time. The classroom itself was very similar to the American ones I had been frequenting for the past three years. My professor was much more relaxed than I had anticipated, since I expected a more traditional teaching approach with a lecture hall and hundreds of students inhaling the professor's every word. Instead there was only around fifty students and our teacher treated us as equals, allowing discussion and questions.
