Academic Center and Writing Services

Advertisements

Universities in the United States also have academic centers that support students in fields that may need additional support. While professors and teaching assistants work their office hours, students can visit the Academic Center to request a tutor, study space, or even attend a session on how to manage their studies. Students at American universities must have some fluency in English, and writing skills are critical to their success. For this reason, universities offer writing services to all students, regardless of learning level. Writing assistance can be especially useful for graduate students who have academic writing skills and know how to avoid plagiarism.

Universities in the United States take the safety and security of their students seriously, and in addition to measures to provide for the general safety of students, they go the extra mile to ensure the safety of international students. They often have their own police departments and campus police are trained to be sensitive to international students. American universities also have provisions for students to request a security escort if they work late in the campus library or lab. All students have access to a campus-wide alert facility that notifies students via SMS alerts of safety-related incidents such as crime or natural disasters.

Most colleges and universities in the United States have basic medical facilities on campus and staffed by medical professionals. Students are required to purchase medical insurance which can be used to visit the campus medical center for all medical needs. In addition to provisions for physical health, the university has an excellent student counseling center available to students for all mental health concerns.
