辛辛那提大学(University of Cincinnati ，简称UC)非常注重学生的工作体验，除了很多校外的工作机会外，在大学校内为优异学习成绩的学生提供了不同的兼职工作。我从没想过有机会作为一名国际学生在校内工作，在校内我成为工程学和应用科学学院两门课程的助教：工程模型II（engineering model II）和工程基础（engineering foundation）。同时我也是UC国际招生办公室的一名国际大使，每一学年新生周活动上，作为国际留学生大使我会帮助来再不同国家的国际留学生，也通过工作认识到很多新的朋友。
Being a student at one of the US universities was a dream and being a student at UC was all what I wanted. It is really a big decision to choose to attend a university that is thousands of miles away from your home. I had expected that I will face a lot of obstacles that I need to overcome. Speaking a language that differs from your mother tongue, living in a different environment, and adjusting to a new culture were big challenges I faced after reaching the country.
Being a UC student is more than just taking classes on campus; especially, if you live in the university dorms where you see students sleep, eat, hang out, and socialize all at the same place, which is campus. I have participated in various extracurricular activities at UC. I have not only learnt new skills, but also expanded my network. I have known a lot of students, professors, and office workers from different countries and cultures through my participation in both on campus and off campus activities.
I was not expecting to have the chance to work on campus as an international student. UC provides different part-time jobs that require time commitment, dedication and good academic performance. I got the opportunity to be a teaching assistant in the collage of engineering and applied science for two courses: engineering model II and engineering foundation. I am also an international ambassador in the international admissions at UC where I get to know international students from different countries during the orientation each new academic year and through the duties of this job.
UC provides students with everything they need to reach their goals. Cooperative education program, studying abroad experiences, educational conferences, ,tutoring centers for certain courses, academic writing centers and more. UC is the best university for any international student who wants to succeed in their studies, and gain knowledge and experience through classes, research centers, and activities of the university. Wish you all the best incoming bearcats!
