The river Schelde flows into the Dutch Schelde called Westerschelde. The port is one of the Europe's great harbors, but it is not a natural harbor. Its docks were dug out and fitted with locks to regulate the water and allow transportation of goods further inland. Eisenhower ordered a broad front advance to hold the Germans at bay and not overstretch the Allied supply lines. North of the line, Montgomery's forces were to be given priority until the port of Antwerp could be secured. Capture of the vast port facilities could greatly improve the supply situation for the advancing Allied armies.
Studying in a new country is always a big challenge, especially in the beginning. This without mentioning the whole new social network you have to build up, often not even leaving a minute of leisure time for relaxing activities. Every type of engagement is encouraged. If you have time to meet your Buddy once this is as valuable as when you have time to meet your Buddy every week. We expect you to enjoy at least one activity together during the first semester.
