As a result, I decided to pursue my education in the US too. I started my High school Compl...

"...回顧2年,是快樂的成長,學業亦取得成就..."

Hei Albright College, Pennsylvania University of Texas - Austin, Texas   當初選擇去Albright的時候,我還是一個不成熟不成材的小子。聽著爸媽和朋友的意見,不知就裡的我就到了美國,心想:好的2年,不好的,也是2年,何防一試?這一試,收成比想像中多。 在Albright裡我認識了一班好朋友,有同是留學的香港人,也有Albright的本地學生。雖然自己不是很social,但Albright的community比較小,亦比較親密,只要肯嘗試,認識新朋友不是難事。一方面有香港的同學互相扶持;另一方面也有美國本地學生擴闊自己的視野。很深刻印象的是有年winter我決定不回港,正尋地方留宿之際有美國的朋友不但讓我在他家中度過寒冬,還帶我四處遊歷。深感美國人的友善的我壯了膽,學懂了和美國人相處之道,也明白了當地人的文化。 Albright的professor亦十分親切。與別的universities不同,Albright的professor會認真實在的關心學生。因為Albright的communi...

"Albright College 是一所很caring的學校..."

Bowie Albright College, Pennsylvania Johns Hopkins University, Maryland   "Albright College是一所很caring的學校。我認為它有助於首次到外國留學的學生適應當地的生活和文化。校內的師生比例低,professor能認出班上的學生。而且Albright College是一所專注於教學而非研究的學校,所以professors會很樂意在課外時間解答學生遇到的疑難,幫助他們爭取好成績。"
