Stockholm University is primarily a commuter school-- the swedish students who attend do not live at the university or spend time outside of the classroom there. In order to make swedish and stockholm friends, you *really* had to make an effort.
In my opinion:
Everybody loved it, you will too!



During my experience abroad, I ...
Became familiar with another culture
KEY:

Happened quite a lot.
Happened a bit.
Didn't happen.
Traveled
Improved language skills
Met people from other countries
Became more independent
Partied a lot
Experienced a change in life
Advanced my studies/career
Personal recommendation:
Live in Lappis and work hard to make swedish friends.



FINAL COMMENTS

Stockholm was a lovely city, and plane trips to the mainland were always easy and affordable. Kilroy travel on campus is a huge help and great deal for planning weekend get-aways. Everytime you return to stockholm, though, you love the city that much more. A beautiful town filled with beautiful people!
