Thinking about studying in the United States?
Hear why these international students chose Adelphi and what their experience has been like so far.
“As an international student, you are always worried about getting a job on-campus; with Adelphi it has been really nice. They are always giving you that extra help that you need – it’s not just always about your classes and studies. There are so many resources on campus.”
“For me, moving to the U.S. was like starting a new life. Everything was new, from the people and friends to the environment and classes. I gained a lot of experience and improved my English a lot, which is a good thing. Being in the U.S. you can meet a lot of people from different cultures. You can learn from them and learn how they run businesses in their countries.”
My classes at Adelphi are helping me to analyze problems from different perspectives and view problems in a new light. I think I am learning how to tackle problems more critically and systematically, which is a skill that I can take with me for the rest of my life.
One of the main reasons I chose Adelphi is because of location. Adelphi University's location in Garden City is very peaceful and quiet, which helps us to keep our focus on studying. But, if you want to go to Manhattan and enjoy the business atmosphere or do something fun in the city, it is very convenient.
At Adelphi University, opportunities will come to you if you if you take the time to search them out. If you’re not doing well in a course, you can go to a professor and ask for help and they will guide you to the right way. They all are very understanding and won’t let you fail.
I would like to learn new skills, discover different perspectives, engage, and experience a new way of thinking. Coming to Adelphi has been a life-changing, world-altering experience for me and I hope to help fellow international students to acclimatize best to our programs and university through being an active member of the community.
There are big differences between the educational system in America and what we have back home. Back at home, there is this gap between the student and the professors, but in the U.S you get more of a connection with your professors.
I have received resume support and interview support, which were both very helpful as an international student. I was better prepared to answer the type of questions that U.S employers ask, and I think all of this support really helped me to get placed in my summer internships.
“Working in New York city definitely had its perks. I got the chance to work with very talented individuals from Adelphi and from other schools in the New York area. I became more familiar with Manhattan and the transportation system there. Working in a big city like New York, also gave me the chance to network with individuals of high influence.”
