Being a smaller group made us connect much faster, which made the semester really enjoyable and worth it. Try to create time for travels because the city has a lot of places to visit and one semester actually feels not enough towards the end to visit everywhere. The city itself is really big with a lot of different facets which can be overwhelming at start, but once you get the hang of it there are a lot of opportunities for every type of person which I loved.
