natewillsheets @ 07:55 pm: Hey Everyone...
Welcome to the community! If you don't already know me, my name is Nathan Sheets, and I am a freshman at Franklin. Apparently quite a few people at Franklin have LiveJournals, so I thought it would be cool for us to have a community.

How is everyone doing so far? Do you like your dorms? Do you have internet access in your rooms? Which classes did you sign up for? I hope everyone is doing great!

Well, I am only a freshman, and we have only had one week of classes, but maybe I can help you.

I like Franklin so far, but it depends on what you are here for. Many Americans come to get drunk for the first few weeks, and then cool down, while a couple of us actually want to *learn* something.

What kinds of classes are you wanting to take?

well, i am happy to tell you that i am one of those people who goes to college to learn..i am not big on the drinking scene.. i am not technically american (even though i was born here, i am more french than anything else) :)
i am an international relations major..centered in int'l economics, which is why i picked franklin to study abroad..because it is big on international studies. it would be great to hear more from you and life in lugano!

I think that Franklin would be a great place to go if you wanted to study International Studies. They are big both the things you mentioned: international relations and international economics. They also have things in international communication and international business.

Lugano is a very cool city, typical of Northern Italian culture. It is so beautiful here! The pictures that Franklin provides don't give it justice. And it is consistantly sunny, which I like, being from rainy Oregon.

The people here are nice, however it is sometimes hard if you don't know Italian. Of course, that is part of the incentive. I would say the only problem with Franklin is that, if you are not careful, you can surround yourself with the school (which, as you know, is American) and not get any of the culture. Of course, that is something that you will have to take on yourself--to get out there, learn the language, and get the most that you can not only from Franklin, but from your whole European experience.

I wonder why people from TASIS and Franklin don't hang out?

Where is TASIS at? Franklin is in Sorengo. Do you know where the Giardino restarant is? I live above it.

I have probably seen you around, I eat there once in a while. TASIS is right up the hill in Montagnola. People go to the Irish pub a lot too. Do you want to hangout some time and chill or something? it gets pretty booring up here.

I'm not right-wing. And Franklin is a pretty liberal place, generally speaking. They are not confined to typical American stereotypes.

I'm a high school sophmore this year but I am very interested in Franklin University. I look at the website almost daily so there is not much on there that I don't know so I would really appreciate if somebody would send me pictures or information about Franklin or just Lugano in general.

do you have facebook? there's a group on facebook, "franklin college switzerland class of 2012" or something like that and a bunch of people that are going there next year have visited the school and posted pictures from when they visited.

i'm not there now, but I got accepted and am trying to make my decision as to where I'm going next year, but have been talking with a few people that are students there now.

if you have any specific questions I can try and help you?
