Real Stories from Real Students:

One of the biggest concerns of international students would be, “Will I be able to adjust in the new environment without proficient English skills?” My short answer is, “Yes, without a doubt.” The faculty members at Gibault genuinely care about all of the international students. Every single member of the faculty and staff remembers specific information about each of the students, and they always try to have conversations with them to make sure that everything is going well. Also, the American students at Gibault are well-educated and well-behaved. If you have any questions in homework, or anything about their culture, they will explain kindly and help you as much as they can. Seoul, South Korea Class of 2011
