Hi Guys !
Hope you are doing well.
I am Koci, an exchange student from France. I was at Clayton State University for the spring semester. It was a good experience, this university is not far from Atlanta a pretty cool city where you can have good times. It is always a good thing to leave your country and discover a new culture, another way of life, even more when you are a student because it is easier to meet people and share experiences. If you have an opportunity to come here, take it. Even if it is difficult to leave your family, your friends and so on, the more you quite your comfort zone the more you will learn.
In France, I study full-time at Caen’s IAE, which is a school of management. My school is little but it is part of the University of Caen which enrolled more than 25.000 students. Caen is a city with a lot of student, many events are organized for students, and you can have a lot of fun. Caen is located in Normandy, a region well known for its landing beaches of the World War II. There are many cultural sites to visit. Caen is not really far from Paris, the capital, just two and a half hours which is not a lot for you guys! France is a country with a rich history, the food is pretty good, and it can definitely be a great experience.
Wish you all the best, see you maybe in France!

We might have not met yet, I am Zsofia Terek from Hungary, a country, located in the heart of Europe. I arrived at the beginning of August to spend a semester at Clayton State University. How would I describe taking part in an exchange program? Fun, fun, fun and even more fun! This month has been a crazy. I have met so many people and participated in so many things!
This is an experience that can never be taken from you! You will have the chance to study in a new environment and learn about differences between cultures, which are necessary in this time of globalization. As an exchange student you can prove to yourself that you are capable of coping with different situations. It is a great opportunity to make life-lasting friendships and travel. Your experience as an exchange student can even be added to your resume!
I study full-time at the University of Pannonia-Faculty of Economics, which is about the same size as Clayton State University. There are more than 60 courses offered in the English language (so you do not have to worry about learning Hungarian). The university is located in a beautiful town, Veszprém, just two hours drive away from the capital, Budapest and only 30 minutes away from the greatest lake of Hungary, the Lake Balaton. There are many cultural sites to see and a chance to travel to the surrounding countries (international students travel all the time through Europe for weekends). Most of all, endless parties (yes, the minimum age is ONLY 18!!! ;).

Hope to see you in Hungary!

I am an exchange student from Republic of Georgia, currently studying at Clayton State University. It was a huge challenge for me to leave my country for five months. However, I was up for the challenge of studying new material, becoming familiar with a different culture and meeting new friends. From the first day of my arrival I noticed, that people were welcoming and attentive.
The Republic of Georgia is a little country in Europe with a very interesting history. People are known for their hospitality. The land is very beautiful. Visiting the Republic of Georgia as an exchange student will give you an opportunity to see the Black Sea, mountains, ski resorts, lakes and rivers. The cost of living in much lower in the Republic of Georgia than in the U.S., so your stay will be inexpensive.
Georgian-American University is a private university and it is known for its Business and Law Schools. My university is considered to be one of the best in my country. It is a small intimate school, so most of the students and faculty members know each other. It is located right in the center of the capital- Tbilisi. The classes and the books are in the English language. The education system is similar to Clayton State University. Georgian-American University also has different sport clubs and competitions.
I’m having an amazing time in my student exchange program. It really gives me opportunity to know myself better, become more independent and develop my personality. I hope that one of the Clayton State students takes a chance to experience this wonderful opportunity and become an exchange student at Georgia-American University in Tbilisi Georgia.
