Massey University Study Abroad

I had a fantastic time studying at Massey University. My home university offers a unique community and challenging classwork, so I very much enjoyed experiencing a new university. The coursework at Massey was a lighter load and overall easier than my home university, but nonetheless I feel challenged and that I learned a significant amount through my courses abroad. Additionally, the University offers a wide varieties of clubs to get involved in. My favorite of these clubs was the Massey University Alpine Club. This club offers trips every weekend to various locations around Palmerston North. The club goes tramping, rock-climbing and other exciting adventures. Overall, the university was filled with wonderful people that wanted to travel and explore as much as I did and we all got along very well.
