“The best aspects of EPS were the class and the professors. EPS is the first [English] class that I have never felt pressured in. Even though there [was] a lot of work that needed to be done, I felt confident and positive because of the encouragement given by the teachers.”

- Robertio, Indonesia, Fall 2014

“If ever I would get a chance to interact with the forthcoming students of the university, I will surely [advise] them to take up this course as it helps to be more confident with the writing skills and helps to gain perfection which is mandatory for professional success."

– Dharti, India, Spring 2015

"I believe the EPS class has given me an opportunity to focus on my communication skills, something that I never had the opportunity to focus on before. It has taught me how to write business letters, essays and to communicate effectively and precisely."

-Deepa, India, Spring 2012

"There were a lot of activities which improve and prepare students for business life. Doing presentation in front of 60 people was a very good step to preparation for real life. A lot of students thought that the presentation is difficult and they can't do it, but the results were completely positive."

-Nawal, Saudi Arabia, Spring 2013

"Our professors taught us many things about New York City.  I [now know] more about the history of New York City.  When I saw a New Yorker on the street, I could understand the “The New York Minute.” I tried to use a different angle to see New York City.  I was not a tourist anymore." 

-Yehui, China, Fall 2012
