Introduction
Hi! Iím Michael Thomsen, a student at the Technical University of Denmark. My field is a combination of electronics and computerteory. In the spring of 2001 I was studying at Florida Atlantic University, more commenly known as FAU. Itís located in Boca Raton, about 50 miles north of Miami. I was enrolled as an international exchange student, due to an exchange program between my university and FAU. This implies that I donít pay the tuision fees, which in my case mounts up to a little more than $5000.

FAUs logo is an owl. It has nothing to do with Hogwarts, though.
(Not as far as I know, anyway).
