My experience as an exchange student
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

So far, my college experience has been incredible. I have learned and experienced so many new things in such a short amount of time. I am still discovering all the opportunities the college has to offer. It is a very welcoming place, and from day one I have felt at home here. I have made many friends from different backgrounds. Vietnamese, Azerbaijani, and Indian students...
