Overall
I wish I had known...
Given the powerful role of Internet in current information ear,one most important thing I wish to know before going anywhere is that, whether or not the place has an unofficial website,like www.hel.fi,that covers almost every aspect or issue that is important to outsiders of the place.

Personal recommendation
Well,I wanna recommend the university to open as many international programs as possible,which,in one way,improves its international reputation,and in the other,contributes to the development of the university by enforcing cross-cultural communications.

Final comments
As I mentioned above,before going anywhere,it is practically important to know as much as possible about your destination. One way is to ask your friends who had been there before,the other way,perhaps the most effective way,is to search information in Internet.In case the above two ways did not work in practice, then one should try to somehow contact local people for information.
