Go to school here is unlike any other. Just know if your here the whole year, be ready for winter. It gets well below zero for months. The summers are great mid 80's. The teachers that are here are very helpful. The cost for school here is actually cheaper than others,great atmosphere.
Husband & I took a cognitive studies for their Psychology Dept. Students use this data for their age studies & we like to help them out. They get plenty young adults to do studies, but folks in 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's, etc...are always needed to help out. Only a 2-hr. study, can be done quicker depending on programs presented.They do pay a $$ stipend for your time.
