"I have learned a lot during the 3 months at Green River College. GRC has a small-scale campus and every effort is made to give international students the best time of their lives. A big difference with the Dutch education system is the amount of support staff at this college. They will help you with every question you have."
"If you are willing to arrange things yourself and look forward to a challenge, I would advise you to go and live at the Campus Corner Apartments. This is a small (international) student district, a 2-minute walk from the campus. You will share an apartment with three other (inter)national students. It’s good to be open-minded, as you will for sure meet some cultural differences. You can make use of several services including a pickup service which make things easier at the start."
"This is one of the most advantageous places you can go to in the USA and it's worth every penny! Why? Because you learn a lot, it gives a good impression to your resume, it's a great experience and you will have a lot of fun."
