    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an introductory Japanese language course. I learned so much in one semester. It was a bit intensive. You will start learning the writing system on the second day of class, and will begin learning the Chinese writing system within the first two weeks. It was a lot of work, but well worth it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about Japanese culture in this class, which was exciting. In addition, my Japanese language partner really helped me with my pronunciation and cultural understanding.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of your quizzes, and do every homework assignment. It really helps internalize the language.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For the most part, everyone is extremely friendly and open but at the same time very focused on school. I truly felt like a little fish in a big pond, something I was not anticipating upon enrolling as a freshman.

    Course highlights:

    As a first year at Penn, I honestly didn't know what to expect. The Ivy league stigma definitely exists here. Plenty of kids are smart, but there are also tons of rich kids from around the world.Coming to Penn was the best decision I could have made for myself.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I feel like Penn is big enough so that you have a healthy variety of people. There's the artsy group, the nerdy group (go Penngineering!), the fratty group, etc. Besides the food, there really isn't anything disappointing about Penn. All in all, a very good top-tier school.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    There's computers around, but they aren't very convenient to find and use, so I always carry my own.The campus itself is quite safe. The surrounding area, not so much.Absolutely horrible! Get off of the dining plan as soon as possible and run away.

    Course highlights:

    There's nothing in West Philly - if you want to go for a walk outside of campus, take public transportation to Center City instead, as it's much safer and more interesting.'s a school implanted in West Philly - not the best place to be. Typically students are too busy to take advantage of "student activities" anyways.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Facilities are decent. Many older buildings but they have generally been updated to acceptable standards.Diversity is a major area of improvement on our campus. As an IVY LEAGUE school we are mostly jewish and Asian.
