Great experience in a remarkable university. I got to take classes with inspiring teachers and made great friends. Leila Z, Spring 2016 - Visiting Student

I had a very memorable semester. I went from knowing how to say "hello" and "thank you" in Arabic to being able to have full conversations with my neighbors. On campus, students and faculty alike were welcoming and made my experience highly enjoyable. Classes were challenging, but I felt very supported by my peers and professors Anne V-B, Fall-Spring 2015-16, Visiting Student
