Congratulations! You've taken the first step in what could be the most important step in your life, an Education in the United States of America. The people you will meet, the experience you will have, will change your life forever.
Many international students who want to feel more comfortable with their English language proficiency choose to come to Umpqua. Our international students find that they have more involvement with English speaking students and members of the community here and so learn the language more quickly than they would if they were living and associating with a large group of students from their own culture at a large university.
