I was amazed by the architecture of this university,and more from the classic style inside.I never thought a university could be so magic. The university had a nice coffee place,and also a good student mealtime. Every faculty was sorrounded with small gardens and flowers.The students were very friendly and also the professors.

Thank Eriketa K
