(二)課程學習

照片說明:Women Gender Studies speech

【照片說明:Women Gender Studies speech】

Women Gender Studies is the most interesting I took in these two semesters. To be honest, I took this class because I heard many people said it is easy to pass. However, when I took it I felt it is very meaningful. The core of the class is "feminist" and "gender" issues. The professor always uses very vivid ways to process the class. I never forget what she did in the class. On time she asked two students to stand in front of the door, giving out the condom. At first, I was very shocked. However, after the class, I didn't felt that was weird. What she wanted to say was that processing a safe sex interaction is everyone's responsibilities. Everybody, both males and females, has to learn right sexual knowledge. She even taught how to use the condom in detail during the courses. It never happens in Taiwan because of our conservative thought, but for her, it is very normal, and a very important concept to pass to every student. So, I recommend the class for everybody who decided to study at SUNY Cortland. The class is not just talking about the sex, it also mentions the feminism, gender stereotype and culture. The range is very wide. Most important of all, the way professor teaches us is very interesting. She not just always gives the lecture, sometimes she plays movies, sometimes she invites speakers to give a speech and sometimes she just give a question in the begging and let us discuss or express our point of view. For me, I think the class is not just passes the knowledge to you, it also stimulate everybody's ways of thinking. By watching moive or disscuss during the class, I always found that my thinking was too narrow, there are many sides I didn't see. Or, I can hear many interesting way of thinking by other students.

(三)生活環境

【照片說明:SUNY Cortland campus】

SUNY is a college system, and there are a lot of campuses spread around New York State. I studied in SUNY Cortland, which is located in Cortland, a small town in upstate New York. When it comes to New York, most people will think of "New York City", a prosperous city. However, it's wrong. New York State is very big, and it includes a lot of cities and towns. Cortland is a small town, which is 4 hours driving from New York City. Basically, there is not too much entertainment there. Usually, we go to Syracuse or Ithaca (two cities near Cortland) on weekends. As for the weather, summer is much more comfortable than Taiwan, but the winter is very cold and a lot of snows. In school, there are a lot of resources provided for students. For the living, the school provides many kinds of dorm options for students to choose. Most international students choose to live in "West Campus", which has so much difference with a normal dormitory. It's a 4-room house with a living room, bathroom and kitchen. You just share those equipment with your 3 roommates, not with everybody. So, I can feel free to enjoy the home. For food, you can choose to cook at home or eat at the cafeteria. "Bistro" and "Neubig" are the two largest all you can eat restaurant in school, providing different kinds of food every day. You can pay by cash when you go to eat, or you can buy the meal plan according to your requirement. SUNY Cortland is famous for its fancy gym for those people who like doing exercise. In the gym, there are many kinds of sport equipments for everyone, like fitness eqiqment, swimming pool, rock climbing, and runway. For those people who are short of experience, there are also professional coach to help you. (308字)

(四)自我成長

照片說明:International student field trip to Niagara Waterfall

【照片說明:International student field trip to Niagara Waterfall】

Studying aboard is not an easy job. I left my family, going to American by myself. I need to be independent and handle everything by myself including face of difficulties. In this year, the first thing I learned was how to cook. Now, I can handle every meal by cooking on my own. Then, I tried to make friends with everybody. I'm from a different country, sharing a different culture. Surely, it is a little hard for me to integrate into them. However, I still forced myself to get along with them, trying my best to understand their culture. Sometimes, we have some barriers but I don't think it will cause a big obstacle for me to get along well with them. Instead, it is a good chance for me to learn more about what they are thinking. Moreover, in addition to American students, there are also many international students. Therefore, the culture in SUNY Cortland is more diverse. Besides studying, we also have to experience America more. I always think that if we just come here to learn the knowledge, I can also do it in Taiwan. So, I also spend a lot of time on the adventure of America. For example, traveling everywhere is the thing I want to mention. During this year, I have been to many cities in America. Part of the money was from my on camps part-time job. This made me feel that I changed and was different from before. In the middle of the semester, I decided to apply OPT, which let me have more time stay in American for the internship. I will work in a summer camp, and I very excited about it. (282字)

SUNY Cortland is a school that supports a lot for each student. Especially for international students, International Student Office always offers a lot of resources for international students, such as orientation, party, and field trip. So, in the beginning of you coming here, you don't have to worry about how to settle down. Interational Student Office will help you, and making you get familiar with everything through the orientation. Then, they also hold a lot of activities for international students, which is a good chance for you to make friend with more people. I very recommend to join the party, and don't miss it. If you have any problem in your academic, feel free to ask. All professors here are very nice. Moreover, there is a free tutor hours for students to join. So, when you have some difficulties, you can make use of those resources. Don't bring confuses with you. By the way, the library is also a good place for students to study. Finally, the most imporant is that enjoy the one year studying abroad. It is very different from Taiwan. You must have a brand new experience. In addition to study, don't forget to go adventure and make new friend. Those will broaden your horizon. To sum up, when you studying abroad at the same time, don't forget to be open-minded to explore everything, this must be helpful to you in the future. SUNY Cortland offer a lot of reosurces to each student, your resposibilities is to make use of them, and improve yourself. (257字)
