- Marrakech WeekendAfter leaving at 12:30pm from school on Friday, Nikita, Darron, Scott, & I finally arrived in Marrakech at 10:30pm that night. We were grumpy, tired, and starving after a long train ride! When we arrived, our hostel ended up Posted by htoberman in Taking On Morocco! | Feb 2, 2015

- Orientation and Settling InOrientation took place from Thursday to Saturday. It was definitely a rough couple of days! I did however learn a couple new things about campus, Ifrane, and Morocco.
Apparently, the grass on campus is "sacred." We are not allowed to Posted by htoberman in Taking On Morocco! | Jan 18, 2015
- My First Day In IfraneEverything seemed to be looking up! After I woke up, I decided to find other exchange students. I met up with Lauren and walked around our school's campus. It is BEAUTIFUL here! The sun was out and I fell in Posted by htoberman in Taking On Morocco! | Jan 18, 2015

We started on Monday by saying goodbye to the Sahara, and leaving behind another probably 50 degree day in the sand to head north towards Fes.
