You have seen it in the movies. You have seen it on TV shows about University Campus.
Life on a USA University.
You have also met students who have returned from a US university and they talk excitedly about their wonderful, fun-filled adventures.
And you wonder, is this really all true?
Well, it is true! Much, if not all of it.
Life at a US university campus is an exciting experience.
It is, in a sense, a microcosm of life on the outside, but presented in a manageable way opposed to a large metropolitan city.
Of course you have all the things which make up a university.
The professors and the classes.
The labs and cafeterias.
The dorms and the administration.
But in addition to all of this, you have numerous opportunities to improve not just your knowledge, but also develop a lot of your personal and professional skills.
There are all kinds of clubs and activities.
Sports to participate in and sports to support.
The electric atmosphere at home games is worth experiencing.
Basketball, American football, baseball, ice hockey, soccer, or swimming will give you an opportunity to join hundreds of your classmates and root for your new team.
There will be a lot of social activities in your dorm and in your academic department, and you’re always encouraged you to get involved.
And that is how and where you start building your network of friends and people. People who will become good friends. People with whom you will start doing things with, right from going to the movies or grabbing something to eat or visiting the city or hanging out at a mall.
But, in addition to all this, there are valuable opportunities to work on campus and enhance your skills in various areas.
Various campus offices will be looking for people who can devote a few hours a week to do administrative or other types of jobs for a small salary.
Besides earning some money, there are interesting life experiences to be had from working in a cafeteria, a gym, a lab or an office, all of which will allow you to expand your horizon and provide you with valuable lessons as you move through your academic career and towards graduation.
