International Education Week 2017

Each year, during International Education Week, we celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. Schools, colleges and universities, embassies, international organizations, businesses, associations, and community organizations around the country organize events to promote those programs that help students gain access to a global education.

In the spirit of these celebrations, we asked our Go Campus students to share with us how studying at colleges and universities in North America has benefited them. Here is what they said.

“I could go on and on about all the experiences I have made. I joined a sorority and now serve as the chapter president for the sorority, something I would have never dreamed of three years ago. Of course I also improved my language skills but how I have grown as a person will always be the greatest benefit I have gained from coming to America.”

Kerstin from Germany 


“I gained better understanding of different cultures. I am more aware of global problems, I love my home country more, I am more eager and brace to try new things.”

Huazheng from China

“It enhanced my understanding of American values, traditions, and culture. My experience with Go Campus gave my an unique set of skills that are applicable for my studies in my home country today. I learned a lot academically, professionally and personally while studying abroad.”

Simon from Denmark



“Thanks to this experience with Go Campus I learned how to speak English, I met people from all around the world and I had the chance to discover the academic programs of another country than mine.”
