All the activities and the program, along with the staff at Texas Global, made our experience not just great but incredible. It gave us the opportunity to make friends and meet professors while preparing for graduate school. Texas Global gave us a lot of good memories and experiences that added value to our personal and professional lives.Eduardo Maldonado Cruz and Paulina Gallegos , 2018 English Language Center Students
