Student Voices


“What I like best about GWC is the atmosphere on campus. Everybody is helpful and comforting. Making friends is very easy here, I guess it is because we are all in the same boat, trying to find our place in this world.” Jassmin Davari, Germany Pre-Dentistry


“Students have the opportunity to join in some amazing events where we could learn, play, and make new friends. Also, in the U.S. students can choose their own classes, and schedule actively. So we could manage our own time and study more effectively.”
Linh & Oanh Huynh, Vietnam Digital Arts


“GWC proved to be my home away from home, and ISP proved to be my family away from home. I’m always going to be thankful for the hospitality provided by GWC staff especially ISP staff.”
Shahood Mohammad, Pakistan Mathematics
