Students' Sharing

Jonathan Wong, Year 3 student majoring in BA

It has always been my dream to study abroad, and finally my wish came true when Centennial College made a student exchange partnership with an American institution, Lesley University. I chose Lesley University because its campus is located at the heart of Boston's Cambridge area, right next to Harvard University. Harvard Square was a great place to visit because there is a wide variety of shops and restaurants. From there I got to experience the richness of the historical and cultural heritage of Cambridge.

Julia Chiu, Year 3 student majoring in BA

The learning environment here in the United States at Endicott College in Boston is very different from Hong Kong. We are expected to initiate group discussions in the class. Teachers assist us in the thinking process and ask us to comment on either the reading materials for the week or on current affairs. I was not too comfortable speaking in class at first but I figured the best and fastest way to learn is to step out of my comfort zone. (Isn't that the whole point of being an exchange student?) Of course, this meant that I had to be well-prepared for class and do a  lot more reading in advance, but I found the experience very rewarding. One thing that surprised me was that local students seem to know very little about the world outside the United States. A few of my local friends here do not even hold a passport as they have never left New England, let alone the United States.

I'm simply can't believe that I have been in the United States for three months already. The weather here has become warmer now, which has made me much more energetic than the winter months, and I am finally getting to enjoy more outdoor activities. As there is a beach right next to our college, sometimes I go there with my friends to relax after classes.

Erica Chan, Graduate majoring in BPAcc

Studying abroad in United States was the best decision I have ever made for it turned out to be a very rewarding experience. The first thing that really surprised me was how kind everyone was and the help we got as incoming exchange students. Each student was assigned one peer mentor for settling and moving into his/her room. I took a walk around the Endicott College campus in the afternoon and it felt so good to be there.
