**Leave your inhibitions at customs! Finns are not modest about their bodies, a thing to remember in the saunas. **And try sauna! It's such a wonderful experience. **Get a host family. Opportunities are available at the beginning of the study period. **Take advantage of travel opportunities while you can (and be sure to stop by Tallinn, Estonia, for a few days). **Finns are quiet by nature, so they may be hard to get to know. Don't think that they are cold and rude if they don't say much. **Get ready for snow and cold weather! **Keep an open mind--about everything. **Fazer chocolate is amazing. **Be sure to see the Aurora Borealis (as if you could special-order it...). **HAVE FUN!! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so make the most of it!

travel- if you stay there 6 months or less???get an inter-rail pass- real cheap and great. visit southern sweden. with the classes you do tons of free traveling. about half the classes you get to go somewhere. do as many classes as you possibly can.

The people are all very friendly and more than willing to help you out when you have a problem. Many things are arranged for the foreign students, and in a very good way even.

This was the best period of my life. I'm still homesick for good old Oulu and all the wonderful people that I got acquainted to. No way I would have wanted to miss this experience. I will always remember it and have become even more certain that there's nothing in the world more satisfying than travelling around and to get to know other cultures and the people who represent those different cultures!
