- Tell us about Fox Valley Technical College
- Fox Valley Technical College was a big surprise for me because I have never been to a university in the USA, so, my expectations were really high, perhaps, my expectations were based on movies that I watched; however, it was kind of accurate, because, the facilities, the hallways, the classrooms, the technology, and the accommodations were accurate to my expectations. But there were some things that were uncomfortable for me, for example, bus transportation was awful and life was expensive, pretty much all things have a high price on it. My lifestyle in Latin America was different because I used to get some coffee or take buses all the time but when I moved to college it was really difficult to do that because the buses did not function all the time and it had a tied schedule. Besides that, the college was a cool place to learn and hang out with friends.
