      USF provides plenty of options
      For Muslims and Arab students specifically, the school
      provides good food and it’s Halal. Here in Tampa you can
      find Halal food both on and off campus. There is no need
      to worry when leaving your country because USF provides
      plenty of options for Middle Eastern students

      Living on Campus
      I live on campus because I think it is more
      comfortable for those who just arrived and in the
      first semester. The campus is very big and very
      often classes take place in different buildings and
      you need to be there on time. So it is better to live
      on campus where you have everything next to you
      and you know everything

      They helped translate from English to Russian
      Everyone at the INTO USF Center has really helped me.
      They told me how to do everything, and they also helped me
      with a class syllabus. I didn’t understand something after
      looking at a dictionary, and I went there and they helped
      translate from English to Russian. In my first two weeks at university, I went to the tutoring center four times.

      Coming Back to USF for my Undergraduate Degree
      This program has great diversity of nations and cultures.
      The opportunities to interact with American High School
      students and to have fun on campus as well as in Tampa
      are great. It has been helpful for me to discover college life as an international student. I will definitely consider coming back to USF for my undergraduate degree!

      Helped me Pass the Exam
      I chose USF because it had the perfect
      opportunity to pass the GMAT exam. I didn’t know
      how to pass this exam, and I couldn’t have done it
      alone in my hometown. During the Pathway, I could
      pass all my requirements, including GMAT. I used the
      INTO USF tutors a lot for the GMAT, and they helped
      me pass the exam and progress to the university.

      Great University
      I am glad to have chosen USF because this is a great
      university that really wants you to be here. They have
      helped with many things, such as personal development,
      jobs, education, among others. My experience at USF has
      been great; I have grown up as a person because I have
      experienced what is living alone, to have a job, success,
      failure, and many aspects of life that prepare you to
      succeed after college. What I have learned here has
      prepared me to succeed after college.

      Teachers are Always Ready to Help
      At INTO USF, they helped me to adapt to the American
      style of education and they were always there for me.
      Classes are bigger here than in France, but the teachers
      are always ready to help. Even though they have many
      students, they are always there for you. I’m very glad that I came here; it’s a great experience.

      University of South Florida
      저는 지금 USF에서 ELI과정을 밟고 있는 학생입니다.
      2008년 9월에 등록을 해서 2학기를 듣고 있는 지금, 저에게 있어 가장 중요한 시기라고 말하고 싶습니다.
      대학교를 졸업하고 온 저로써는 조금은 긴 시간의 적응기간이 필요했습니다. 솔직히 한창 취업전선에서 뛰고 있어야 할 시기였으니까요. 하지만 좋은 친구들과 정말 적극적으로 가르쳐주시는 선생님들이 있어 이렇게 열심히 공부 할 수 있을 수 있지요.
      친구들이라하면 다들 나이가 저보다 어리지요, 다양한 나라에서 온 아이들과 수업을 듣는 것도 신기하고 다양한 문화 체험을 할 수 있어 좋습니다. 이 학교는 가을에 International Festival이 있거든요. 매주 금요일과 주말에 다양한 활동이 있습니다. 유학생들이 유학오면 정말 외로운데 다양한 주말활동 덕분에 외로움을 덜 느낄 수 있고 또 영어를 더 가까이 할 수 있지요.
      선생님들도 얼마나 친근하게 다가 오시는지 몰라요.
      항상 웃는 얼굴로 답해주시고 먼저 메일 보내주시고..
      약간 소극적인 제가 적극적으로 공부하게 끔 도와주신답니다.
      이 학교 끌리지 않으신가요?
      한번 도전해보세요!! 후회하시진 않으실 것입니다.

      수업내용
      모든 수업 내용이 우리에게 유익한 내용들이었다. 토익을 준비하는 학생이나 미국에서 대학교를 갈 학생이나..수업이 영어로 진행되지만 한국말로 배운것보다 더 잘 알수 있게 가르쳐 준다. 특히 문법같은 경우...그리고 스피킹이나 리딩 라이팅 모두 많은 도움이 된다. 누군가 USF ELI에서 영어공부를 한다면 적극 추천이다.

      楽しいです。
      ここは気候的に温暖で、とても過ごしやすいです。
      先生達も穏やかで、親切に接してくれます。
      Fall semesterは日本人の交換留学生が比較的多いと思いますが、Spring semesterは大学の授業に参加するので、ELIにはほとんど日本人がいなくなります。
      参加型の授業で、日本では味わえないような授業なので毎日楽しみながら通っています。
      宿題は毎日でます。

      A great experience
      Fue una experiencia muy especial, donde se desarrollaron varias areas personales no solo academicas, el aprender a vivir al estilo americano es algo incrible, en nivel de profesores excelente y las relaciones entre compañeros fue de lo mejor, sin duda un lugar para hacerte de buenas amistades
