"The ELL Support Center is helpful for international students.
Last semester, I could not get all A's without the help of the center.
The tutors were so nice to me. They explained things to me that I did
not understand until I understood. I learned a lot of things that were
not only academic English but also everyday English from the center.
When I did not have any plans, I went there and enjoyed conversation
with the tutors and students from other countries. I gained some new
friends. I really thank the ELL Support Center."
