STUDENT LIFE

KEY:
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
So-so.
Did not get involved.
Nightlife
Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Students interact with the local community without much university involvement
Activities, Nightlife: Takes place mostly outside the university/student environment
Travel: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
The`re are several bars you can go to in Brussels. I like the bars in the city center, depot, mezzo, cafe central, mappa mundo, dali`s bar, but. I haven`t found a real student bar, I mean a place where you can meet students from other universities. The student asociation from my university aranged a couple of good parties and also the student asociation which was helping the erasmus students. Fuse (big club) parties were very good. In Brussels they have nice clubs but rather expensive.
