Hello Past/Current MUL Students,
I know that many of the questions that you guys have received thus far generally ask about admissions and what books to buy etc.... but I've got some concerns that are quite diifferent...
Its obviously very scary to leave what we know to go study in a foreign area, but to better understand Lublin (as compared to New York) I was wondering if you guys could help me answer these questions:
1.) What is the quality of the water in Lublin- Is it drinkable straight from the tap, or should I buy a filter? or should I just get bottled water over there?
2.) I know that much of the towns diversity comes from the student population, but do they have restaurants/food that cater to us? For example, would I be able to find indian spices or soy sauce in the grocery store??...or do they have indian and/or chinese and/or other ethnic restaurants?
3.) Health Care- This is a majorrrr issue.... If a student falls sick, who do we go see? how much does a visit to the doctor cost? am I better off just bringing a whole suitcase of tylenol, sudafed and the works? should I bring my health insurance card?
4.) How much does it cost to buy bedding items, winter jackets, winter shoes, pots/pans, and other little "everyday" things?
5.) If I chose to live in the dorm, do they offer meal plans, and if they do- how much are these plans, and IS the food worth it?
6.) Is anyone willing to put up pictures of the dorms at lublin- or at least the dorm that you live in? Id like to see what Prusa looks like...
7.) This is probably the most important question- Is there a general sense of unity among the English program students? Obviously every school has its share of the good and bad but it would suck to be apart of a program if everyone was negative and unwilling to help a peer out...
Sorry for the long set of questions guys- but hopefully we can get some informative answers that help people understand what it means to live in Lublin!!
