One of my favorite memories is Maryville College is Intramural games, It’s the best place to show off sportsmanship and sportswoman-ship. You could team up with your friends or join a free agent, which is a good way to meet some new friends. They host a variety of sports, soccer, indoor and sand volleyball, basketball and softball. Soccer is by far one of my most favorite games I’ve played growing up in Jamaica. Volleyball too is another favorite game, it’s not as popular as soccer back home. Through wins and loses you strengthen relationships with friends.

One of the best advice for future Marvyille College International student, is to make friends. Leaving home might be difficult and being in a different environment and culture, socialization is the best method to get acclimated to the culture in the US.
I've met a lot of friends from other countries that said if I ever visit their home country and can I can come and visit them!

Also I've met great friends Corvonn met my freshman year at Maryville college, he then later transferred my second semester. But it's almost as if we've known each other for a lifetime, I've always spent Christmas with him and his family, and they have become my second family here in the US.
Studying here in the USA at Maryville College has served to widen my career and open up many and varied opportunities for educational advancements. In Jamaica I would be somewhat limited in the choices of what and where to study. Maryville College has opened my eyes to even bigger and better career opportunities. I have more fields to choose from and the career center has opened up links for gaining knowledge in a hands on approach.
