“I really enjoy learning about how we work as human beings. Learning about how we think and behave fascinates me a lot,. Besides, the way that COD professors present class material is very interesting and easily understood for me. I’ve taken many psychology classes at COD, and almost all of the classes I took can be transferred to a four-year college or university as a part of their major requirements or electives. This will help me to get my B.A. degree faster.”Read Spotlight

“I grew up in a small town in India, and we never spoke in English. When I entered College of DuPage, I was so worried about the language. But I liked the small classes, and I could see no visible barriers. It was a friendly environment, from office staff to faculty to other students. I’ve had very good instructors, and they could remember my name, and that really surprised me."Read Spotlight

“College of DuPage has an amazing CNA program. You go to clinicals and actually face the reality of being in the field, interact with nurses, other nursing assistants, and most importantly patients. What I like the most about this school are teachers, their dedication to students and amount of knowledge they have. Of course, there is always a big piece of me that misses home, but another piece of choosing this path makes me feel so proud of myself. Education has always been very important to me, and the education I have gained so far is worthwhile.”Read Spotlight

"I got my first job working as a student assistant in the International Student office. As an international student myself, I find it fulfilling to be able to help other international students who are just coming to the U.S. It always reminds me of how excited I was yet scared and having no idea of what my life was going to be after arriving here."Read Spotlight

"I've had a great experience dealing with the international population and improving my English skills. It's taught me that communication skills are really important, and I'm working with students who do not speak native English. I've also had a chance to learn about American culture."Read Spotlight
