Other comments: Generally, the institute is good and in a unique location in downtown San Diego. However, the following would make it even better: Increase of facilities such as toilets. Create an open room or space for students to gather outside the institute instead of blocking the walkway(s).
Openness of the teachers, the atmosphere, contacts to people from all over the world
