Final comments
I would finally comment on the approach of university administration that it does not consider on any possible conflict regarding the issue of transfer of credits at the end of terms.Also I suffered from too burocratical stuff such as extending of my resident permission and obtaining public transportation card. All those problems could be prevented from occuring if the university administration had dealed with them on behalf of their prospective students before.

It was located nearby a train station called Kannelmaki and it was slightly out of the city. Eventough I liked to live in a forest-surrounded town and flat, including great facilities, it was not a created area for student life.

Barikarpenan is a student oriented club which all students drop in on Thursday and get socialized in. It was my favourate too. Student Union was a good mediator between social life and university life. Unicafe presents great facilities for infotainment. Hyvee Vappu is a cool celebration of 1 th May and should not be missed. It is held in a park where people and students enjoy the taste of freedom and get rid of the feeling of boredom.
