Final comments
Make sure you get a Carte 12-25 from SNCF (Train company) if you come here. It will help you save quite a lot of money. Try to get a debit card that has a smart chip in it, it makes things more convenient. There are a lot of machines that will not except a debit/credit card with just a magnetic strip.

EXPENSES
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:
None
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits
Lille is less than three hours away from several metropolitan cities: Paris, London, Brussels, Amsterdam, Luxemborg. There are also numerous charming villages that are worthy of exploration as well. Travelling on the train is inexpensive with the carte 12-25. This is different from the U.s. where everything is so spread out and traveling is quite expensive.

HOUSING
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
I enjoy having my own personal space where I can live independently. When using university housing, it is difficult to have out-of-town guests stays with you. Having people over for dinner can be quite confining.
