I am now firmly settled here and I'm slowly becoming acquainted with the University grounds. Guelph isn't as large as I had anticipated, with pretty much everything I need within managable walking distance. The university has about 15 thousand students, a third of which live in student housing. I get free access to to public transportation as a student at the University. The prices here are very reasonable and people are very friendly. So friendly, in fact, that my naturally-bred Icelandic reticence is thrown off-track.
