The relationship between the students and the professors here in the FLA has been very comforting, particularly because the environment is similar to what I’ve experienced in 12 years of international school education. I found the FLA professors to be passionate about what they teach and always willing to meet with students outside class to answer questions or go over difficult material. Not only do they teach students how to solve problems, they also guide students to think and act on their own.
There is an abundance of different cultures represented at Sophia. As a result, students accept each other for who they are. There is no sense that students form cliques according to race or nationality; rather, such differences are welcomed by others with open arms. Diversity is what makes the FLA one-of-a-kind.
