My experience at SolBridge started with the orientation week, and I remember how amazed I was to meet so many people from different countries, and how fascinated I was by the facilities… I discovered the great environment to study and I was impressed by the professionalism and the friendliness of our teachers, mentors, staff, and classmates.
The most memorable thing about SolBridge for me was the amazing campus life. My semester was rhythmed by many excursions, parties, movies, concerts, lectures and other events organized by the school and the Student Council. I enjoyed any single week at SolBridge. For six months, SolBridge has been my home, and SolBridgers, my family.
