This is my first semester. It makes me think that there are a lot of things that I haven’t experienced yet. However, I am discovering all the tools that are offered to me at SCCC. I would like to recognize that the library is an amazing place provided to all of us.
I am grateful to this university for giving us the opportunity to learn the language so that we can have more opportunities in this country.
I belong because I learn with each class and I am making an effort to feel more comfortable here.
I do feel a sense of belonging here. From the first time I came here, everyone has been so helpful and kind. The class has been a safe place for me. It was and is still the only place where I do feel like I am part in my recent journey coming to the USA. Coming twice a week and seeing my classmates has become part of me that I truly appreciate.
I feel welcomed because the staff is helpful and kind.
We live in similar situations here and most of them involving the fact that we are from other countries. It is good to come to class and see other people learning English and about the culture from the United States too. This way, I don’t feel lost. Being far from home can be lonely sometimes. This program keeps us connected
We all feel part of the Suffolk Community because we are all learning English.
I absolutely feel a sense of belonging as an ESL student since I started in the course. I’ve learned a lot because of the English classes that I am taking here. In fact, I got a promotion at my work where it is full English.
I feel part of the student community. I have the same opportunities as other students. The teachers are attentive and they try to understand us as best as possible.
I feel a sense of belonging because the ELL program is very inclusive.
Yes, I have the feeling of belonging as the professors are very kind and the rooms are comfortable. Also, I made friends in these two semesters. They give me support and I give to them too. The bond between students is strong and I call them “friends”. The end, the college has many useful tools to learn like the library, the virtual platform, and tutoring.
I felt a sense of belonging here at SCCC when I contacted the ESL Department. The teachers and the counselors were delighted to help me out and gave me good advice. This made me feel welcomed.
