    “I really enjoy learning about how we work as human beings. Learning about how we think and behave fascinates me a lot,. Besides, the way that COD professors present class material is very interesting and easily understood for me. ​I’ve taken many psychology classes at COD, and almost all of the classes I took can be transferred to a four-year college or university as a part of their major requirements or electives. This will help me to get my B.A. degree faster.”

    “I grew up in a small town in India, and we never spoke in English. When I entered College of DuPage, I was so worried about the language. But I liked the small classes, and I could see no visible barriers. It was a friendly environment, from office staff to faculty to other students. I’ve had very good instructors, and they could remember my name, and that really surprised me."

    “COD offers a variety of classes at different hours and locations. I usually take classes at Main Campus and at the Naperville Center, closer to my house. More recently, I got the chance to work on campus, helping me to practice my English, socialize better and learn more about the American culture.”

    “I have been passionate about photography for some years now, thus I decided to take classes and get the most I can from them. Also, I started studying it in my home country where I took some photography classes. The possibility to learn deeply has become a passion for me. College of DuPage is a great place to study and has many resources and qualified staff.”
