While I'm not experiencing the true university experience here, I am experiencing the foreigner's university experience here through the USAC program. The campus as a whole is an excellent one in my opinion, fully equipped with a small park like area in the middle, basketball courts, pingpong tables, tennis courts, and a gym. There are plenty of restaurants near by with the Tibetan district right outside the west gate, the first ring road outside the south gate, and small noodle shops, bakeries and baozi shops outside the east gate. The staff of the university with whom I've encountered has been amazing. The teachers have been helpful and knowledgeable, the buildings nice (yet often cold in the winter), and the cafeteria cheap. If you're trying to return into the dorms in the evening, a quick warning that the other gates close and you must enter through the south gate.
