The think I liked most about the classes was that we had to work hard, but we had a lot of fun, as well.

Richard and Linda: When it comes to St. Norbert, I feel like getting homesick. I miss everything that I left in De Pere: a beautiful campus with the Fox River, friends, teachers and tutors. Are the teachers still there? I learned from Jana, Christina, Susie, and Kay. They were all the best. How about tutors? Is John, Jana's husband, still helping students? I have lots of good memories with him; my first NFL game, which made Packers my team, a dart game, bars and so on. I don't remember his name, unfortunately. He worked for a newspaper company. He always liked to talk about political stuff. I guess he has been talking about a gas price lately and how it is going in the world. I have experienced many things since I left St. Norbert in 2006. I left for Omaha, Nebraska at first, and I took a big trip, crossing America from New York to Los Angeles in 2007. Now I am in Scottsdale, Arizona. I was pursuing to get a MS degree when I came to the U.S., but I changed my direction. So I'm taking a personal training program at present. In fact, I just came back from my country for summer vacation and saw friends who I met in SNC. Han, Min, YD, Chihwan, Sungjun, Kate, Grace, they are all missing the time. I think it's because they improved their English a lot over there and had a good time. I agreed with that. I experienced four different ESL programs in the four different states, and I can say that SNC has the best program. Thank you so much Richard and Linda. Yours truly, Yongha Seo
