HOUSING

Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? It was the perfect choice. Apartments in Muenster are hard to find, but also all over the place because of the huge student population. Just look hard and a good one will come to you.
Personal comments:
The dorm life that I experienced from others seemed to be fine, but apartment life was great. Having my own space worked out well for me.

Personal comments:
The German university system is simply different from the American. Any improvements I would give would be moving the system to be more americanized. Whether that is better or worse I cannot say.

FINAL COMMENTS

enroll in some university activities (like sports) to meet local students. They know the best places to go to. A Erasmus-tutor is also a nice option, although it didn't quite work out for me (in other cases it did however).
