We are Sandra and Maren from Austria (Europe) and got to spent the fall semester 2018 at the NSCC Ivany Campus where we were taking the social service program.
At the beginning we were a bit overwhelmed by the big campus and all the new impressions but our class was so warmly welcoming us and we soon made friends. All of our teaches made sure that we feel comfortable and we could ask questions anytime.
One unforgettable memory for us was the visit at a Hindu Temple in Halifax with our class. We also got to see different social institutions around Halifax that gave us a good insight on how social service workers are providing support for the people in the community.
We got introduced to the work life of a social service worker in Nova Scotia, built a lot of new friendships and could enjoy our free time in the breathtaking nature of Canada.
All in all it was a great experience and we are so happy that we got the opportunity to participate at this exchange program.
We sure will miss the time here and recommend everyone to go abroad!
