145.gif Even though I have spent just a few months in Goldsmiths, it feels as if I belonged years before. At the beginning I had a fixed idea of what Goldsmiths was about, but since the first days, these ideas have been challenged. It’s like being in a big family: the staff are so friendly, the teachers are great, but the best thing I’ve found out are the students, the community that keeps Goldsmiths alive. You get the feeling that Goldsmiths is a 'bottom up' College, where the new ideas begin within the community and then they flow upwards. The students are always looking forward to be challenged, to think differently and to find new approaches. There’s a strong sense of the multidisciplinary at the College, and thus there always are great opportunities for collaborations. Goldsmiths definitely changes you in many ways. It won’t be easy to forget this extraordinary experience and I am glad to reckon myself a Goldie!
