After coming at mid of Sept 2013, for the first two weeks at ITC we had the relaxing, informative yet fascinating Introduction Weeks when we were being introduced to ITC campus life. Nice orientation time, without any torture, a good experience to start knowing campus, friends and also first try to mingle 😀 And of course, it will prepare me for the real “torture” 😉 😆
