This entry serves as an introduction between students at Orebro University, Sweden & Stanford University, USA. Read a more detailed description of this exchange.
Hello from Stanford,
We are Group A (Melissa, Kyle, and Trevor).
Kyle: Hey, I’m Kyle Vermeer and I am a sophomore at Stanford University. I study Computer Systems Engineering and enjoy playing basketball and video games. I look forward to meeting you all and seeing how life and study is in Sweden!
Melissa: Hello! I’m Melissa Sussmann and I am a sophomore. I hate talking about myself. I would feel like a pretentious person if I were to tell you all of my greatest qualities online to make you all think you know me. Since you don’t, I will leave you with this: I am very fascinated by your culture and would love to get to know more about all of you.
Trevor: So this is Kyle and Melissa again and we shall give you an in-depth analysis of our final group member, Trevor “The Rock” Metoxen. The subject in question appears to be unresponsive during most hours of the day. He is an elusive man whose preferred method of communication is typing from the comfort of his own room. He looks forward to meeting you 🙂
After viewing both our school websites, we noticed that the Stanford website appears to be more focused on the research aspect of the university, whereas the website for Orebro really focuses on their students. The three rotating pictures on the front screen highlight their students and their students’ success. The environment of your campus seems to be very down to earth. There were no photos of concrete and hard cold cement on your page. It seemed like there is a great emphasis on acceptance and tolerance. You have an equality page and focus on equal representation of council, teachers, students, and staff. It seems really great how your school does not overlook some things that people tend to just choose to ignore as part of their daily routine here.
