Playing DI tennis in the US was the best four years of my life! I would highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about it. Most of my team (and it seems most teams at DI) were foreign guys so at least you have an immediate group of people to hang out with and show you the ropes on campus, so that helps.
I played about 15 years ago and I still keep in close contact with my coach (he is still there) and most of my teammates. It makes it fun to go on vacations and travel the world and see the guys after all of these years. Plus my game improved tremendously while I was in college, I am quite sure I never would have had that happen without the college experience.
