From Student Blogger, Jefferson: Inches, Yards, Fahrenheit, Acres? What is going on?

The United States is a country full of diversity. It doesn’t matter where you are from, or what your beliefs, traditions or ideas are, you will always find a group of people that has the same culture as you. However, there are some things that set the U.S. apart from other countries, and you will simply have to adapt and learn how to deal with them. One good example of that is the U.S. measurement systems. إقرأ أكثر

From Student Blogger, Aanchal: Reading- Best Workout for The Mind

For me, reading is undoubtedly a great entertainment. Unlike other games, play stations, social networking or phone applications, reading does not require you to pay any fees. Articles can be browsed from anywhere at any time and glanced over. Books are generally low priced and there are some great forums that help readers exchange or trade in their novel. This helps you gain a bundle of knowledge at a cheaper price and be at ease in your home. إقرأ أكثر

From Student Blogger, Aanchal: Dealing with Overwhelming Homework

Now that I’m back from a Spring Break getaway to rest my body and mind, I’m quickly reminded that homework to me always feels like a never-ending task. From a student’s lens it’s a high pile of stress. The challenges of homework and assignments can lead to anxiety, stress and frustration.

From Student Blogger, Jefferson: Living Among Nations

I arrived in the United States about 6 months ago, and since then I have been staying at a place called “The iHouse,” which stands for The International House. It is a rental property located in Reno, Nevada, which exclusively hosts international students who come from all over the world. You can already imagine the variety of accents around here. Living in this house is crazy, in a good sense. I have housemates from all over the  world. Sharing a roof with different kinds of people is an experience that has opened my mind immensely. إقرأ أكثر

From Student Blogger, Daniel: An Unexpected Opportunity

As an international student there are so many things that we have to navigate. We have to learn and adapt quickly to a new culture, we need to keep up with and get stay on top of classes. Sometimes we even need to learn a new language, especially if we speak a different one. But the most difficult thing we deal with is the separation from home. There’s nothing that fully prepares you for being away from your family and that initial bout of homesickness that you feel. For me, I’ve been away from home for three years, and, don’t get me wrong, I love New York;. I love the people, I love the diversity, I love everything New York has to offer and what it represents to for me, but it’s been two years since I’ve last returned home to Guyana and I must say I fully miss it. إقرأ أكثر
