BU Review

Information on BU The BU campus stretches along the Charles River. Unlike many other American universities, however, it is not a traditional campus: the main buildings of the university are all along one street, Commonwealth Avenue. All the important buildings of the university are located on this street: all lecture rooms, food court, libraries, the university’s own bookstore, fitness center, etc. Approx. 30,000 students study at the BU.

SDSU Review

Education: After completing my main studies in my business administration master’s degree, I went to SDSU or San Diego State University as detailed on ehuacom.

The SDSU internet portal, which includes all courses, provides an initial overview of the wide range of offers at the SDSU. Just go to the SDSU web…

Spending the semester abroad at HPU was one of the best decisions I have ever made. After completing a semester abroad at San Diego State University in 2007, it was clear to me that I would like to take this opportunity again.

CSUSM Review

As a disclaimer: Since I was a minor during my two semesters at CSUSM, my experiences are probably a bit different from those of the others who did a semester abroad there (driver’s license, etc. ). But that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t necessarily recommend a semester abroad at CSUSM! See more information on ehuacom. Accommodation After thinking about which of the host families offered by Homestay I should choose, I found accommodation with a Persian host family, who gave me…

CSUC Review

CSUC Review

I spent the 5th semester of my bachelor’s degree at California State University Chico in the winter. The main reason for my choice was the fact that comparatively few international students study in Chico and that I was less tempted to speak German all the time. Chico is a small but nice student town with around 80,000 inhabitants, so everything can be reached by bike in a very short time. Accommodation I stayed with a host family who were really…

Because I registered relatively late and was interested in UCLA, it was almost impossible to get a visa in time. I almost had to give up on my dream, but then a CC employee found another option. I had to completely change my choice of course, but that turned out to be a relief in America. The trick was I was only allowed to take a maximum of eight units, because then you don’t need a visa.
