What do our student's say?"I came to Avondale as an international student for the unique opportunity of combining my studies with travel in a country I’ve always wanted to explore! The best thing about Avondale is how friendly all the students are; it’s easy to find friends as soon as you arrive. Living in the dorms especially allows for a good balance of having a social life and still having time to study. One of my favourite things to do on the weekends is to go into the city with friends or spend time at the beach. Café Rejuve is a great spot to hang out at on campus as well!"
