It has been a month since I put down my suitcase to start the new page in my life at Felician University.
As same as all of the students that enrolled in this FU program, I am a transfer student from out-state high school. The most attractive part of this program is that students get to transfer to Top colleges in the United States by only one year in FU and get the high school diploma as well, which saves one year of my life in unnecessary school works.
We have two beautiful campuses--- Rutherford and Lodi. Most classes are on the Lodi campus. The school life has been very different from high school. Students do not have to wake up at 8:00 am to go to school, the time you leave for school depends on what classes you decided to take. Therefore, students may have all day working in the school, but perhaps just have one course in the other day as well.
We do not have massive homework assignment so far, and the professors are very knowledgeable and kind to students. I had skipped some classes because they were so early and I had a hard time to push myself of bed, which is a horrible habit and I am working on this very serious since I do not want to have too many absences that will affect my grades.
Most of the students in this program have been living in dorms. Instead of dorm-living, I chose to live with a host family. My host parents are nice people, even though sometimes my host mom had been a little picky. However, the most important part of living with people who are not your family is to negotiate well enough to keep everyone comfortable. We have been working on it, and it went very well.
欢迎来 Felician University 一起吃瓜
Felician is in an excellent location, super close to NYC, which makes life more enjoyable. My friend and I often go to NYC to discover more exciting things that we don’t get a chance to see in ordinary life. The students and my supervisors are amiable and responsible people. They have done many things to me, and I genuinely appreciate that.
It is a fun journey, and I look forward to seeing what more is out there.🙂
