    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Resources for international students (Part 2)

New EducationUSA Logo

In an older entry, I talked about resources found on campus. Now I want to talk about a great resource that you might actually have access to before you arrive in the U.S or at C.S.S and moreover, found in your own country possibly. Perhaps one of the best resources for international students, EducationUSA is one of the best platforms for getting connected to U.S universities, especially St. Scholastica. Back home in Zimbabwe, it was through the facilities at the U.S Embassy Public Affairs Section, Education Advising Center, that I managed to navigate my college application process. CSS has certain requirements for international students such as standardized tests, immunization records, academic transcripts, letters of recommendation and so forth. These may exist in a different format (and/or language) and the Advising Center is a great tool to help you get acquainted with how best to have your documents set in a way that an admissions official in the U.S. can understand.

From the first step of searching for schools to apply to up to the final step of preparing to leave home for the U.S, you can get all the assistance, information and advice you need.  Here is an excerpt from the website:

EducationUSA Serves International Students
Each year, EducationUSA advisers respond to millions of inquiries from international students. Advisers offer a wide range of in-person and virtual services to students and their families based on Your 5 Steps to U.S. Study, a guide to navigating the U.S. higher education application process. Advisers provide information on a host of topics, including:

  • The admissions process and standardized testing requirements
  • How to finance a U.S. education
  • The student visa process
  • Preparing for departure to the United States

You can also watch videos on what other international students have to say about this resource here!! Keep calm and apply to CSS!! 😀
