Program Reviews:
Spring 2016 Participant
There were nice programs designed for students to learn more about Singaporean culture and life.
Dayna Leanne Hardgrove, Spring 2016 Participant
When I was told that I received a dorm room in Singapore without air conditioning I will admit that I was worried. It was hot, however the room was clean and there was a good fan that kept me cool enough to be livable. The dorm complex itself was well built and it was all inclusive of everything I needed including two food courts with several good food options, a gym with basketball and tennis courts, and a mini store with all kinds of goods. It was also a very green complex which made it feel a bit like a garden escape. ]
