What International Students Say About Us

Major: Paralegal Studies

"While I was looking into American colleges, I contacted several and decided on CLC because the staff was the most responsive to my questions. When I started taking classes, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful everyone is—the staff, instructors and students. The student ambassadors took me under their wing, and I later became one to help other incoming students. My goal is to enter law school at Northwestern University or DePaul and study intellectual property law."

"The tuition at CLC is very attractive for international students. Per credit, it's about one-fourth to one-third the cost of an American four-year university, and the quality of the education at CLC has been excellent. The classes are interesting and the professors welcome the perspectives of international students in classroom discussions."

"At CLC, I worked part-time as a computer lab assistant and help-desk technician. The job not only helped me pay tuition and living expenses, it helped me to learn the physical components of a computer and how to troubleshoot PCs. I also learned communication skills, teamwork, handling deadline pressure and working with customers. The education was excellent, and the instructors were pretty awesome. I love that school."

"I have benefited from many services the college offers. The staff from the Center for International Education helps me whenever I have any concerns about my student documents or other paperwork. The English Language Instruction (ELI) teachers were very effective and supportive in teaching me how to speak, listen, write and read English. Also, the library, along with the writing and math centers, have helped me with my homework. The Student Activities office is a very good resource if you want to get involved and get to know the culture. I've been involved in Campus Crusade for Christ, Latino Alliance, International Club, Phi Theta Kappa and student government. These organizations have helped me to learn leadership, team building, time management skills and more."
