    gerund

    situation: I was telling my experience during my first day of class..I'm still studying in the university now...Is it correct to say


    1. I was nervous and excited before studying in this university.


    Also, I want to know the part of speech or the function of the word "studying" in that sentence. Is it a gerund? Thanks!

    Re: gerund

    I think it should be "at this university"
