Student Experiences

Megan Soutter
Bachelor of Applied Science (Exercise Physiology Honours), Semester 1, 2016
Host City Highlights
Visit to Portland, local hikes, floating down river.
Uni Life
Amazing! Lots of school pride, very into sports, friendly + welcoming.
Easy. Lots of access to facilities + equipment for learning.
On campus dorms. Awesome way to meet people and super close to classes.
Money Matters
Budget was $15 000
Getting Around
Transport was pretty good but tended to have locals drive me around
Spring and the start summer is great because weather isn't too hot but great for outdoor activities. Winter is super rainy. Look at Greyhounds and Amtrak because way cheaper but much longer. Booking way in advance allows cheap flights. 
Top Tips
Think about cost it's a pricey experience but totally worth it!
