What impressed you positively?

"The campus is much nicer than I expected, as is the city." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There was no recycling program in place at the lunch which was provided. Also, the student's seemed a little young. Not in a bad way, but they tended to emphasize how Western was the--and I'm quoting here--"Bestern." Following this philosophy, instead of emphasizing their academic side, they focused a lot on the party life in London. This is something I'd like to know, but our tour guids got so excited while describing city-life that I thought they might flash me (okay... so maybe I wasn't negatively impressed persae)."
