The best experience of my life. Before 2008, There was a dream that somehow couldn't come true, because of several factors, however in 2008 that scholarship for a educational life in US had made that dream come true. Sharing cultures, learning new technologies at college in an easy way, meeting different people with different goals for their lifes and several other reasons were moments that will never be wiped out of my mind. Studying at Parkland College was so amazing that sometimes It was funnier being at College rather staying home, that because not only the courses themselves but also because we used to come across teachers, roommates, coordinators everyday and that was really amazing. I really Thank CCI program, Parkland College Staff and all my friends that made that dream come true. show less
