Student Life

Living in the United States

As an international student, you will enjoy and profit by many new and exciting experiences while studying in the United States. You may soon discover that we are a country of immigrants, probably the most culturally and ethnically diverse country in the world. We believe that our diversity is what makes us a great nation. Our values and belief systems come from virtually every part of the world. As you travel from one part of the country to another, you will notice this diversity.

Americans enjoy their freedom and independence. That characteristic may at times make us appear to be not interested in you and your needs. If you don't ask for help, we may think that you don't need or want any help. Therefore, if you need help or if you don't understand something, please let us know! We are happy to help in any way we can. A tip: In order to meet new people and make new friends, you may have to take the initiative.
