What is the student lifestyle like in Lleida?
Well, from the college point of view, lifestyle is really cool here. All Erasmus students are under umbrella of coordinators and professors. Classes are interesting, entertaining and involving, people are great and system is well organized.
On the other hand, after school students lifestyle can be either calm and pretty or crazy and awesome. It depends from society your in touch with. I enjoy either Erasmus students company or Spanish students, it doesn't matter, all of them are lovely, helpful, friendly, organized and cool.
