Personal comments
In Cairo, well all of Egypt people overall have a very relaxed attitude toward academics. Its nothing like America you aren't rushed to do anything. Most of your instructor will take the time to have lunch with you dinner, they go to the coffee bars with you . Its very relaxed which is the part I loved the most. If you had a paper due and didn't finish it most of them would usually extend the date because they know there so much to do in a short amount of time so they take this into consideration. That you don't come half way across the world to be stuck in a class room.

Course recommendations
First of all, classes can seem pretty easy, especially for people attending universities in the states. I couldn't believe how much they treat us like babies, until you see how immature some of these kids are! Just suck it up and deal with it. Besides, you're here to travel too! Oh- Tomader (Head of International Students) is EVIL- beware!!!!!!!!!!!

The reasons some of the students there is dubious- its obvious they bought their way in. If you want a lot of work- take more challenging classes, if a class doesn't seem like a good fit (too easy, too hard) change it immediately! Make friends with Egyptian students!!! They will help you so much- EXPECT NOTHING FROM THE INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS OFFICE!!!! IF SOMETHING COMES UP- GO TO THE AMERICAN EMBASSY! TOMADER IS EVIL

Some of the professors just gave us a bit too much work, but it all got done at the end.
