It's not all fun & games at the exchange program

OH NO NO NO! YES IT IS!!!
I'm sure my economics professor will agree when I say that, "Like Hirshey, Exchange is a MUST!"

Remember those Fridays, when you would come back to your room in the evening exhausted from from a gruelling day of lectures (one which most likely taught you that management is nothing but complicating a simple problem with big fancy words). You throw your heavy bag, and subsequently yourself, on the bed, and thank the lord that there is no assignment submissions the next day. And you close your eyes in peaceful slumber.

It's much the same in the exchange program. EXCEPT, instead of Friday, it is EVERYDAY; and instead of the evening, it is ANY TIME OF THE DAY; and instead of attending a lecture, you attended an AC DC CONCERT, and instead of your heavy bag, it is a half a bottle of JACK DANIELS. That my friends, is the gist of the exchange program for you. But seriously, there are classes to be attended in the exchange program also. There is a very hectic schedule of approximately 3 DAYS a month!!! And of course, there is all the holidaying to do in Paris, and Milan, and Rome. Takes out a lot of you. And don't even get me started on the women. Because after all, this is family blog.

In short, the phoren exchange program is what Jeeves would call "good education". And as opposed Pink Floyd, we DO need the education.

P.S. We do some studying too.
