Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July Today is Independence Day in the United States and hopefully you’re already in the US so you can celebrate! If so, dig out your best red, white and blue outfit (preferably with stars and stripes), then get familiar with why this holiday is celebrated and how you can join in on the festivities.


Save Money Renting Furniture from CORT

furniture rentals

As an international student you don't want to spend all your extra money on furniture, it should go towards traveling and exploring the US! However, if you’ll be living in an apartment or residence hall that’s unfurnished, you will need necessities like a dresser, lamp and sofa. Instead of buying furniture, consider renting furniture! With CORT you can rent what you need, have it set up before you arrive and save money.


How to Start Healthy Habits Now

Healthy Habits Late nights, quick bites and missed gym sessions can only mean one thing: summer is here. Although summer is about fun and freedom, it’s also a good time to establish a good habit or two. Here are a few healthy habits to begin now so you can start the new semester off on the right foot.
