When graduate student Yafeng Zhang ’16 came to Tampa from China, it wasn’t just a foreign land. It was like being on another planet.

With little English, it was a challenge even to go to the grocery store. Everything looked different. When it came to classwork, she didn’t know what a syllabus was and had to spend a half-day reading and translating it word by word. She didn’t know about Blackboard or how to order a textbook online.

“We faced difficulties, but we got help,” said Zhang, whose son joined her in Tampa months after her own arrival. “I’m so thankful to my professors and friends who helped me.”
