Going to college has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. It placed me at the center of SUU with all of the resources literally steps away. It allowed me to create a wonderful network of great friends. It has allowed me to take control of my college experience and make it one of a kind. My favorite things to do at SUU besides going to class is getting involved with countless clubs and organizations.
For me, college was the right path and Southern Utah University is the right place. Since Cedar City is small and rural, it really creates a sense of community among the international students. With everything that I have experienced here at SUU, I can’t imagine having gone anywhere else. I believe that my experience at SUU has helped me grow as an individual and be more confidence about myself. Also, I would like be a role model for new students, so they can get inspired and get involved in extracurricular activities.
