Things to do in Burlington

"The Global Gateway Program improved my English writing and speaking skills, which are important for an international student studying abroad. [Teaching] is very interactive here. Professors are really patient and try their best to teach you what’s most useful for international students. I have become active in class, participate in class discussion and always ask questions.”
