The University for Peace Experience

Hey howdy hey hi.

It’s been quite some time since I’ve written here, and I feel that I owe the curious an update.

I’ve been studying here at the University for Peace for about a month now, and so far it’s been an incredible experience.  Saving the academic aspects for subsequent entries, the amiability and cosmopolitanism of the community here are simply unreal.  On the very first day I was overcome by the feeling of having made well over one hundred friends in a matter of minutes, and since then I have come to know and (love?) the majority of the people here (looking forward, of course, to getting to know the rest).  The senses of trust, tolerance and friendship you experience on campus are entirely indescribable.

Whatever benefits to humankind may come from the training and transference of knowledge that occurs at the University for Peace, through the students who will take those skills and apply them altruistically around the world, there is fundamentally and undeniably the symbolism of so many people from so many countries, customs and creeds living and studying in absolute harmony, to serve as inspiration for hope, goodwill and global betterment.
