Living the Life: The Ultimate Experience of Studying English in the US

Life at a US college or university is about far more than what you learn in the classroom; it’s the friendships, internships, travel, and adventures you have along the way. Campuses across the country pride themselves on offering hundreds of student clubs and organizations, as well as sports, music and art events, and connections with nearby cities and outdoor adventures.

Whether your idea of a perfect student experience is building a close friendship with an American “language buddy,” picking up a new artistic or athletic skill (from basket weaving to rock climbing), working part-time with a local business, or taking weekend trips to world-famous tourist destinations, schools in the US are committed to making these goals a reality.
