A former student of Wardle High School, Helen is enjoying her stay in Connecticut,
where she is living and working with students from all over the world. She has been
taking an active part in the University's International Relations Club, which is dedicated

"Making the transition from studying in Preston to studying here was always going to
be a big challenge, but it has been the best experience of my life", says Helen. "The
campus is beautiful - a mixture of the old and the new and a very safe and secure place
to live and study."
