The Student Union blog is a place where students come together to discuss the realities, challenges and opportunities of studying in the US.

A corps of current students who have come from all over the world to study in America tell stories about their experiences - everything from financial aid and visas to daily life and culture shock.

And we want you to join in to share your questions and your experiences and your culture. Our goal is to learn from each other - whether you want to study in the US, have already studied in the US, or are just interested in meeting people from around the world, you're welcome to join in the discussion!
