How did you learn about ASU?
I heard about ASU when I was freshman back in Viet Nam. I attended a study-abroad event with the hope of making my American dream come true. Then, I met and talked to the representative of ASU, and I decided to try my hardest to fulfill my dream. And yeah, I made it to ASU.
Why did you want to attend ASU?
ASU offers such a great curriculum programming for international students not only to gain knowledge but also to experience the multi-culture where I can meet people from different backgrounds. Also, ASU has a lot of scholarships and awards which are crucial for students. I believe ASU is one of the most affordable schools for international students.

I want to say thank to Angelo State University for having such a great fraternity.
