(一)基本資料

I studying in America, in Indiana University Of Pennsylvania. I live in Indiana on campus. Came here since 2017/08/22 till 2018/05/26. The class I took are some of different,intro to religion, japanese, intro to business and Psychology. We couldn't took too much class here, but the assignment and quizzes is tough. (50字)

(二)課程學習

One of my favorite class here is Psychology. The lecturer is professor Rufrano-Ruffner, before taking this course, I though Psychology is simple, mainly studying about what people thinking and how to control temper. Turns out it is not what I thought, Psychology is comprehensive, mainly studying about human’s behavior and what causes those behaviors. Her teaching method is very helpful, the arrangement and syllabus are specific, let students easily understand what to do and how to arrange our time to study, which made me highly recommend her class. Teacher is friendly, yet the class is not that easy to get a higher grade, we should study hard, find tutor to get some extra point. Every week on Tuesday or Thursday, we have online quiz to do, every quiz is important, not only included the content that teacher have touch in class, also have some new information we haven't learned yet. To push us review and preview, it is kind of helpful. The professor never required us to bring textbook to class. She will send us learning sheet every single class, make sure every student makes it to the class, if student absent the class, they will get the punishment of the lower grade of study sheet. I think the biggest different between her teaching method with other’s lecturer’s is she will always create lots of interaction in class, asking students questions or our experience. Sometimes we will have group discussion, which made us exchange our experiences and knowledge. At the beginning, I was nervous during the class, worry I could not answer the question that professor give us. After few classes going, I am kind of adapt this mode. It helps me more focus on the class, and seldom miss the important information at the same time. I really spare lots of effort on this class, and I improve myself for sure.(315字)

(三)生活環境

I really love our campus, although it is not the top ranked campus, it still provided wonderful resources. The stadium is very big, there were some basketball game will host on our campus, the library is beautiful and large, it provided the independent study room and set up different function room for student to use, I love the gym here, provided plenty of equipment, not need to fight with others even during the peak time. We live in school’s dorm, the name of our dorm is wall work hall. Actually I like to live in this place, the location is good, near the student restaurants, gym, hospitality management’s department, and library is not too far. There were also some of the helpful resources inside the dorm, such like study room, kitchen, pool room and some sharing space for student to chat. The only issue I dislike is the living fee of our dorm, it was too expensive and I hate them force the international student need to live on campus, which made us no choice but spend these moneys. The weather in IUP is varies widely compare with Taiwan. I love the Summer here, the weather is not too hot and sunset on roughly 8 o’clock, which means we have more time to stick with sunshine. The weather will be getting cold at December and January, the winter here will snow heavily, the coolest day will only have minus 18 degree, it was really frozen. Make sure you prepare the warmest coat.(253字)

(四)自我成長

Studying aboard more or less, certainly will face with some impact. Such like cultural difference, language difference and having different joke. Although I spend a lot of time to improve my English ability, sometimes I find myself still hard to conversation smoothly with American. At the new semester here, I am really nervous, hard to get rid of my comfort zone. I still stick with some Taiwanese students, who coming with same campus with me. However, I found that it won’t help me to immersed in American’s life, and won’t make me improve either. So I decide to challenge myself, go make some foreigner friends. The thing is it is very strange to talk with a stranger with no common topic, especially when I am a foreigner here. Yet I keep waiting, wait till a chance for the group discussion. Teacher make us to join the groups with some American students. I start to talk with them. On the second semester, I am getting used to the live studying in IUP, I am not afraid of the strange environment, and willing to become more open-minded to know other people. Another good thing are I applied the conversation partner and match with Alec, he is an awesome guy. We talk a lot and also hangout sometimes. It is the first time I find a truly friend in America, and every different between me and him doesn’t exist. We share culture, share experiences and knowledge, we have had lots of good times together.(255字)

(五)大三出國建議

In case of me, I really experienced lots of things this year. Not just study, I also travel to lots of different places. I suggest every junior who planning to study in America, America has its ups and downs, mainly ups with how big it is and the many places you can explore. If you ever have the free time, it doesn’t hurt to explore around and road trip. The best experience here is spending time with foreign friends, when you really find a friend here glad to listen to you and curious of your country. You can always share with them your own culture, and teach them some mandarin. Everyone can try new things here, such like taking sail boat, sky diving or ski. The most important thing is keep safety as the first priority. Before travel to each city, make sure to do some work first, and then decide how are you going to get around at that place, some places for example: Los Angeles, Seattle and Vancouver. Driving is very conveniently. However, in New York driving is not a good choice at all. Just a reminder, America has lots of parties to join and student definitely would like to join some of the party. But in USA you can’t drink alcohol under 21 years old, they take this very seriously, so everyone should keep in mind. Hope every junior will have a productive year study aboard. (240字)

(六)其他

For me, this is the productive year. I spend time to join TSA group, handle some activities with group members. I got the reward of my wonderful GPA in IUP. I travel a lot around America, actual broaden my horizon. Although I still face will lots of weird and unlucky stuff, such like my debit card have been fraud, harassed by stranger, or some sort of discrimination. I’ll take them all, all of them are the crutches that push me forward, pull me up. Time’s shoving fast, I am leaving here. Yet every precious memories I will never forget.(101字)
