Why USAcademy?

USAcademy exists to make life easier and richer for international students - those coming to study in the US, and those in the US already. 

As the number of international students grows, the " integration"of those students into US culture - and campus culture - becomes more difficult.

Unfamiliarity with idiomatic English, lack of preparation for culture shock, and taboos against asking for help can mean that students form country-specific enclaves, and return home without having had a true study-abroad experience. At USAcademy, they can ASK and LEARN about many things: US culture, American English as it is actually spoken, the international student experience, and campus life.
