What our student-athletes say

Maiken Bing Paulsen

Presbyterian College, South Carolina
CSUSA runs a professional and efficient process, from presentation and communication with schools that was a good fit for my level, ambitions, and wishes, to land a scholarship deal with the school. With the help of CSUSA an extensive and unknown process was made easy and safe.

Fredrik Hedemark

Davis & Elkins College, West Virginia
I recommend CSUSA because it is a very professional company with a big network, and because they help you through the demanding process of becoming a student-athlete in the US. The best thing about getting help from CSUSA was how they generated interest for me as a player, that otherwise would be difficult.

Øystein Fjeldberg

Wingate University, North Carolina
Getting to the US as a student-athlete is a long and demanding process that involves a lot of paperwork, and in my case I was really happy that CSUSA could help me through this.

Marthe Berg Sørensen

Long Island University Post, New York
I recommend everyone to travel to the US to combine education and sports, because you learn so much more by being a student-athlete in another country. Both the language, the culture, and the things in life that cannot be taught on the school bench. You will have incredible fun!

Markus Kvame Naglestad

Providence College, Rhode Island
I recommend everybody considering college sports in the USA to get help from CSUSA. Every member of Team CSUSA has been through the process themselves, while also having helped countless clients to fulfill their college dream. They have all been through every step of the process and have also managed to create an impressive network within college sports.

Simen Olafsen

Florida International University
I needed to get away from “safe” Norway and learn to live alone. This, and the opportunity to get a great education, alongside with playing soccer at a good level, was very tempting.

Ian Wu

Missouri State University
Best thing about being here is the complete package, good education, great facilities and possibilitites to develop as a player and human being.

Kristoffer Tollefsen

University of Kentucky
The best thing about being a student-athlete in the US is that you develop as an athlete, but also maybe more importantly as a human. These are most likely the best four years of your life – a fantastic time where you experience a lot, learn a lot, and have a really good time!
