A Life Changing Experience - South Puget Sound Community College

A Life Changing Experience - South Puget Sound Community College

Sherman South Puget Sound Community College, Washington Ohio State University, Ohio   "Before I studied abroad, I lived in my comfort zone and didn't want to leave Hong Kong for challenges. After the HKCEE, I felt like I wouldn't do great in A-Levels because I am sick of the torture of HK education system. Therefore, I decided to try out something new, South Puget Sound Community College! My first impression of SPSCC and Olympia was that their style of living and learning are so di...

我對South Puget Sound Community College的意見

Chun South Puget Sound Community College, Washington Indiana University, Indiana   "我係華盛頓州讀左兩年幾,我認為South Puget Sound Community College環境優美,寧靜而且老師都非常熱心幫助國際學生。Olympia公共交通完善,學生只要有學生證就可以免費搭巴士去學校同商場。係South Puget Sound就讀其中一個比較特別之處係比較少國際學生。係大約120名國際學生中只有約20名香港人。絕對係講英文嘅機會多過廣東話。"

'I can’t believe it’s over'...

Gloria Exchange - Idaho University of Oregon   “I can’t believe it’s over!” I mumbled and was disappointed by the fact that time flashes by so fast. It’s time for me to leave the huge brown walled room I owned for a year, the big pretty house that I live in, the delicious homemade American and Italian food, peanut butter jelly sandwiches, the swimming pool which is just pumped for summer, the strong “yummy” smell of onions, the cars that I ta...

Life Lessons Learned at Dean

Life Lessons Learned at Dean

Jessica Dean College, Massachusetts University of Wisconsin - Madison   "Life is all about making choices, and going to Dean was one of the choices that I never regretted making. America is the land of freedom. Everyone has every right to choose for what they want. It is very different from Hong Kong where there are restrictions in every aspect of your life. It is the nature of every living thing that when something is more constrained, the less potential energy it can give our. I g...

Life in Albright College

Life in Albright College

Matthew Albright College   An American college like Albright College is not a usual place for boring school life. It is a college where community and relaxation exist, which can rarely be found in the world today. Students can easily manage to do well on their schoolwork yet they can have fun communicating with different students from other countries. There is no racial problem, and the local people are always willing to help and aid us, whether based on assignments or daily life issu...

Victor Alfred University, New York University of California - Berkeley, California           Alfred University is a wonderful place for studying when you first studied in the United States. It is a small place full of friendly people who are willing to help. The small class size and helpful professors are the key to students’ academic success. The reason why I chose Alfred University three years ago was that it is a small school far away from urban life. I&...

My Exchange Student Experience

Sheena Exchange (Utah)   I have been back to Hong Kong from Utah for a month. I love being in Hong Kong, but I also misses Utah a lot and even wants to go back sometimes. The reason why I have that feeling is very simple. It is because I had a lot of fun there. What have I done in those 10 months? I stayed with a great host family and they treated me like their own daughter, a part of their family. First, they asked me to choose a color for the room which I was going to stay before I ...

"...或許這就是美國在教育上比香港成功的地方。”

Timothy Foothill College, California University of California - Berkeley, California   "Foothill College相對香港學校自由,可選讀的科目亦比較多。在我讀書時,沒有太大來自功課的壓力,反而令我有更多時間去追探自己喜愛的學科。讀書本來就應該是一件輕鬆快樂的事,或許這就是美國在教育上比香港成功的地方。"
