My name is Irini Tserepi and I am a current student in ACT (Senior, 4th year). In the beginning I decided to study in ACT because it is fully accredited by NEASC which means that it meets all the standards for institutional quality. Now our degree will also be validated by University of Wales, which means also an European recognition. After I started the college experience though, I realised that ACT would provide me with the required skills and knowledge in order to be successful in the outside tough world, and this is because through the continuous evaluation by tests, assignments, real case studies of companies and facts, I will be well-prepared for the real business world. In addition, studying in a multicultural atmosphere is very important as you learn how to adjust easily to nowadays multinational working environment.

ACT not only gives the opportunity to students to learn through the textbooks but also through experience. Every Spring semester it hosts the career days fair where well known companies come and interview the students for part-time jobs or internships. This helped me to learn how to prepare an attractive CV and how I am supposed to behave in an interview.

What has made me feel more prepared and feel stronger though are the talks from our professors who are well equipped with knowledge from the outside world and inform us with their experienced thoughts of what is going on out there. Moreover, ACT hosts many lectures, conferences and seminars with guest speakers from all around the world, people who are known in their field of action. I feel that the text books can give you the basics and theoretic strategies, but what gives you the real knowledge is to listen to people who observe the situation in the outside world and share with you their thoughts which are related to the theories of the textbook. I feel lucky to study in such an institution where there are people that can help you in every kind of worries you may have at anytime. Not only I am learning from books but also from other extracurricular activities and from interaction with people from different backgrounds.

Finally, ACT gave me the experience of a lifetime, which was the study abroad semester in the United States. By its exchange programs, it helped me to go out and see the world, see things that I have never imagined I would. Studying abroad made me realize where I want to go in my life, and how important is to get involved in other activities. Live for a semester in a totally different culture that is so competitive, made me change as a person and when I got back, I saw college life not just as something to go through but how to make it the best period of my life through new experiences and challenging tasks.

ACT has been preparing me all those years how to deal with in a competitive environment and be successful in what I will choose to do.
