The students also loved their teachers, especially, their passion and enthusiasm.
“They were in-deep experts in their profession and did everything they could to help us reach good results. You always had a chance to talk to them and they answered all our questions with pleasure. They were very friendly and helpful, I always felt like I was a part of the supporting community”, says Akvilė.
Skaistė, who also had a chance to work at the UCF administration, says that all the staff, both administrative and academic, were always trying to share their experience and help.
“They wanted me to feel at home,” says Skaistė.
According to the students, the classes at UCF were very valuable in providing a wider range of understanding about public governance. Non-profit leadership, public administration, resource development in a non-profit sector, features of non-governmental organisations and the national government of America were among the courses that they enjoyed most.
Interestingly, according to Skaistė, the studies at the UCF seemed easier to her than those at KTU, as the students can plan their time hassle-free, knowing well in advance what they will do in the forthcoming weeks during the lectures.
“Also, the teachers perfectly understand study-related stress. For them, a student’s emotional well-being is a top priority,” says Skaistė.
The University Campus felt like a Hollywood film
The girls were very impressed by the UCF Campus. According to the students, one may feel that the campus is designed to emphasise the students’ community feeling.
“The main UCF Campus is located only a few blocks away from the central business neighbourhood of the city, thus the students can easily reach the locations of their internship, their job places and various cultural, and leisure activities,” says Akvilė.
According to her, the student campus is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and technologies, such as teaching rooms, a digital media laboratory, the law clinic, and the community centre.
