My first week at METU
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love how the university system works here! People are so friendly and helpful! There are international students here than I expected. The campus is beautiful. And the hitchhiking system is so cool here. It is kind of easy to get around the campus and there’s a lot to do here. You can hang out wherever you are in the campus. I love it.
