Why Participate?

Feedback from student alumni:

“First, I enjoyed Summer Institute because I got to make friends. I am more aware of the campus resources. It taught me about American lifestyle and the education system. Most importantly, I felt like it was a time to relax and have fun rather than studying and being stressed out.”

“Not only did I get to practice my English language, but I met many friends. Workshops, field trips are full of fun. Best part is everything is free!”

“It is a great chance for new incoming international students to get to know each other and also know the professors and campus. They also have a chance to talk with other students to get some tips on how to be successful in college. It is also a chance for people to learn by playing. It is very helpful.”
