How much personal free time is there?

This is a really interesting question, and it brings up a key point about the difference between "free" time and "not free" time that often defines things inside the "Bubble" in our lives in Shanghai. During the day at the Microcampus, you will be given some clear guidelines and instructions, and then you will be responsible for directing the learning process and designing your schedule for the day. This will include project work, exercise, connecting with family, taking care of personal needs (showering, laundry), and so on. The design of the experience is to break down that clear difference between "in class" (following somebody else's instructions) and "free time" (choosing your own path).

K.T., a former Microcampus student said it best: "At the Microcampus, you're always learning, from the time you wake up until the time you go to sleep."
