The first thing that comes to mind when I think about the school that I study at are the teachers. […] Interactivity and the argumentative style take precedence in this university. My advice is to try to realize whether you are made for an academic career or for a practical experience. If you are meant for either one, then the Romanian-American University is a good place to do it. In any case, whatever you choose to do, do not limit yourselves to attending courses and taking exams. Explore the multiple opportunities provided by the Romanian-American University and try to make the most of your time. One day it will pay off!
