Italian boys seem to interact with erasmus better. The girls seem to be more reserved. You can pick up the italian language quite quickly. The italian course is very good also.

Course recommendations
I would say chose courses which are based on projects and not written exams. You tend to score better. Do not leave the projects until the last minute though.

Final comments
Go to Switzerland! it was an amazing experience. I went to Interlaken and Bern. 4hrs from Milan to Interlaken. Check out funny farm. Rome is amazing. You need a week to take it all in though. I was there just for a weekend. Munich in October. Go to the october festival. It is a cultural shock.

Check out Milan. Go to propaganda nightclub, I only found out about it when I was leaving, free drink once you enter nightclub. Old fashioned is where all the erasmus hang out, also in Milan. You should have plenty of free time. Check out the october festival in Germany and go to Interlaken in Switzerland, 4hrs away, stay in funny farm youth hostel.

Personal comments
I thought it was very expensive. It costed me 365 euro for a double room. However it is a private university and most of the students are quite rich. The facilities were exceptional. There was always hot water in the shower and the layout of the rooms are nice. Each comes with a t.v with loads of channels.
