Orientation and Settling In

snow 20 °F
View Studying Abroad in Morocco! on htoberman's travel map.

Orientation took place from Thursday to Saturday. It was definitely a rough couple of days! I did however learn a couple new things about campus, Ifrane, and Morocco.

Apparently, the grass on campus is "sacred." We are not allowed to walk on the grass, only on the marked pathways. Also, cats are all over campus. When I went to downtown Ifrane I even saw a cat in one of the cafes!

It has been snowing a lot. I hope the weather gets nice again soon! I am freeeeeezing here! It has been pretty frustrating dealing with all of the issues with becoming an exchange student. For instance, the Internet will not work, I cannot set up my printing account, I cannot send through my transactions for paying for the semester, and everything seems to not work here. Hopefully it doesn't continue to feel this way, but I know I will just have to adjust to this new culture.

I met my roommate, Rania, today and I think she will be a great roommate! Things are definitely getting interesting here! I am very nervous for classes to start up tomorrow. Nikita, a couple girls from the University of Dayton, and I have been hanging out and planning spring break. Right now we are looking at traveling around Italy for spring break. Who knows what experiences are headed my way! We are also planning on traveling to Marrakech for my birthday. This is going to be a great adventure, I just want to start exploring today!
