Course recommendations
Try to get an AA before heading to the school. The basic courses aren't worth the time. Many of the teachers are pretty arrogant. One was teaching for only a semester before he left there. The italian classes, however, are impeccable.

Personal comments
Assign papers, projects, anything that actually requires a student to think. Make sure that the department heads and the teachers are on the same page, so that the class isn't arranged around a book that wasn't ordered and had to be found online or imported from US. Also the book store is a complete joke.

Course recommendations
If you can take courses that are more likely to have students who aren't study abroad. Most students try not to make friends with the Study Abroad kids because they leave 4 months later but I had no classes with them to meet any of them at all.

All courses are small, and attendance is mandatory, but you get all Fridays off! Make sure you go to class and get to know your professors, it will help you out a lot.
