Aarhus: More than just classes

As a MA candidate for Corporate Communication at Aarhus BSS, I might say that the study loads are quite heavy. Yet, I want to maximize my time in Denmark.

Dorm: Hejredal Kollegiet

Got this place as part of “Student Guarantee” from Student Housing because lots of students are coming for the new semester.

Return journey to 17th century

Revenge is better served cold, says Netherlands

Just finished watching one of the most anticipated match by the Dutch in World Cup 2014! They really had their “revenge” after losing to Spain at final of World Cup 2010 by scoring magnificent FIVE goals into Casillas’s sacred place! But that is not why I am here. I want to share a video I made BEFORE the…
