Bahçeşehir campuses at central locations in Istanbul, Berlin and Rome, create settings where cultural opportunities of the city centers, diverse dimensions of architecture and education exist on common grounds with the university facilities. Moreover, exploring world cities and architecture as a method of learning/teaching is encouraged through site trips, summer and winter schools and exchange programs.
I grew up in Connecticut, USA. Connecticut is the complete opposite of İstanbul. It is filled with trees and farms and there are only three malls (that I know of) in the entire state. Growing up half Turkish, İstanbul always intrigued me so I took the leap of faith and came here for university and I have never been happier. Coming to Bahçeşehir honestly was probably the best and craziest decision I ever made. My first couple months consisted of many learning curves. It was not only my first time living in a city but it was also my first time fully living in a place where English wasn’t the first language. I now have friends from all over the world and my eyes have opened up to the rest of the world. I have learned not just from my classes but I have learned so much about empathy and about how different people can be from us. I learned that being different is a beautiful thing.
