One of my favorite experiences was working in the residence halls as a Desk Assistant. I usually worked from 3 to 6pm and 10 to midnight twice a week. Every time I worked at the desk, I met many students who lived in my dorm (May Hall), and we talked a lot together. Working at the desk helped me get to know many students who I wouldn’t have met and it was a perfect opportunity for me to learn how the residence hall operates. I truly loved working at the desk and talking with the other students who lived in my residence hall.
I really loved my host family experience and I suggest everyone apply to participate in the program. Host families help you to adapt to a totally new environment. My family asked me out to have a date with all of their family and sometimes even with their friends. It was very good chance to meet new people and talk together about my life in River Falls. My host family was wonderful and I really did feel like I was part of their family.
Being a student in the UWRF is a wonderful choice for anyone who wants to study in the United States. They have so many programs that make you to be involved in the campus, and most students are pretty much open to anyone from other countries. If you are open to talk anyone and willing to hang out with them, they would love to do that. One thing that I want to say is don’t be shy, don’t be hesitated, just do it!
