Student Comments

I took the U.S. History and Culture class because I wanted to learn more about American people, life and traditions. The book that we used was very useful and interesting. This class helped me to understand more about the American way of life and values and eventually successfully enroll in Graduate program in San Jose State University.

In the US History and Culture class, I had a really good time learning culture with Simone. It was very useful learning about housing, education and the current situation in the U.S. Now, I want to talk more about each topic with my American friends.
