Q. What were your criteria when you chose a university to study for your undergraduate degree?

I wanted to study close to my family in upstate New York. My first choice was State University of New York at Old Westbury (referred as Old Westbury) because it was somewhat closer to home compared with other schools. Old Westbury can provide me the degree that I passionate about, and the environment that I want to be in. Plus, it is a veryselectiveuniversityinNewYork.

Q. What are your advises for Vietnamese students who are seeking for a right university in the U.S. to study?

Do lots of research, know what you like, find what the school can offer you, find a place that fits your personality so you can feel calm and warm, or go with something different to challenge yourself and learn the new culture and new life. Be adventurous and be inspired!

Q. What was your biggest challenge about English language when you 1st arrived in New York?

I had a disadvantage in vocabulary. However, it has been improved very quickly with the help of my friendship family and friends.

Q. Did you receive lots of helps from faculties and classmates at FMCC in term of improving English in the beginning?
My English teachers were really informative with mostly grammar and written materials. It was also helpful that I hung out with friends from different countries to improve my English.
