Sample transcript

Maura: In this episode we are continuing on the theme of university life and Harp, give us a little introduction on your university and college days.

Harp: Ok, so mine was different from yours in that I went to a 2-year community college program.

Maura: Ok. Harp: And then I went for 2 years in university.

Maura: Really! I have never heard of that?

Harp: I ended up with a university degree.

Maura: Ok.

Harp: So it is considered the exact same as a 4 year program but you do 2 years in a college, you have smaller classes, it’s less expensive and then all of the classes I took, every single one, transferred to University.
