Life in the USA

The United States of America consists of 50 different states and as a result 50 different cultures. The “melting-pot” is often used to describe the country as a whole because it is a mix of so many different cultures from every corner of the world. Built with the hands of immigrants, the United States is one of the most diverse places on the planet. The same, or even more, can be said about most college/university campuses in the US. No matter which institution you choose, you will have the opportunity to mix and mingle with American students and other international students.

Most colleges/universities offer student housing, in the form of dorms or student apartments. Based on the city you are in, it may be more economical to live in off-campus housing. US VIP Group can help you gather the necessary information and make an informed decision.

Learning how to navigate the city around you, is a fun process, but there is a learning curve. In the US, the most commonly used directional tools are North/South/East/West and these are generally used for pedestrian directions or driving directions. Public transport, depending on the city you are in, is generally related to neighborhoods, landmarks, or street names/cross-sections. Feel free to ask US VIP Group about any further information or details, and if we cannot help you, our sister agencies can.

If you wish to drive in the US, the Department of Motor Vehicles can issue a driver’s license for any international student who presents the DMV with the correct documentation and passes the written and driving test.

All international students are required to have university issued medical insurance while residing in the US. If the student has personal medical insurance that meets the standards of the university, this requirement can be waived.

Most international students have trouble adjusting to the food that is most common in the US, which is also readily available on college/university campuses. If you have any questions about your dietary needs and restrictions, US VIP Group will be happy to help you and give you guidance.
