Ardiel Plata, Spain, Erasmus student at the Journalism Department from October 2012 to January 2013

My name is Ardiel and I study in Madrid, but I’m from Canary Islands, Spain, thousands of miles away from one of the most charming cities in Romania and Europe, Cluj-Napoca.

Cluj is characterized for its incredible cosmopolitan atmosphere, great college environment and its enormous cultural offer. But what most attracts me to this place is the people. Romanians are open-minded people, charming, impulsive, with a big heart, big smile, and always willing to help you.
Something that we can find within the walls of FSPAC is the Journalism school, where I study. In this place, students not only benefit from the things that I described, but also from the teachers.
For me it is a pleasure to study with my colleagues and the teachers, who have a background of knowledge about the actual world of journalism and are so willing to cooperate and stand out for their students. This attitude transmitted to the students brings good initiatives and above all, learning through practice; for this, the college has a large number of devices and modern places.
Studying in Cluj-Napoca is a great experience for those who, just like me, want to see other places, other cultures and learn from them.
Cluj is not the city that you might expect to be; along with the people, it always surprises me.
