FBI

Hancock International College is dedicated to the safe and secure process set forth to help our International ESL Students study in America. Our Friends at the Federal Bureau of Investigation are a huge part of why we are able to help so many International students achieve their dreams.

House and Home

Homelessness is a problem the world over. There’s only a .17% ratio of homelessness in America, however we at Hancock International College know that amounts to more than half a million Americans. Our ESL students come from places with more than five to ten times that number and so I thought I’d share a happy story about how some homeless…

Shoot the Moon

Since the moon landing in 1969 Americans have been obsessed with getting back to the moon and going beyond. Hancock International College and our ESL students are excited for what space exploration can bring and were excited about Googles XPRIZE competition that would move the whole world closer to getting back to the moon. Sadly it looks like this particular…

Public Radio

With all the amazing technological advances connecting the world it’s easy for some of us at Hancock International College to forget about Public Radio and how it paved the way for today’s communication innovations. Our ESL students might not have had the same kind of radio experiences as Americans did such as National Public Radio (NPR) and other public radio…

Save the Eagles Day

Many countries where our ESL students are from have symbols that metaphorically exemplify the way they view themselves in the eyes of the world. America had many options but in 1782 congress adopted the design as part of the Great Seal of the United States. It makes sense because the Eagle has been used since ancient times as a symbol…

Choreographers Day

Dance is a language in and of itself. American dance is a melting pot of dance styles from all around the globe and our ESL students all know about movies like Step Up and shows like Dancing with the Stars and World of Dance. Hancock International College has had many students and staff that love to dance and since American…
