I had a quiet, peaceful, and simple life back in my home country of Vietnam. There weren’t many challenges for me there. I heard about Virginia International University after searching for a universities in Virginia that offered a major I wanted to pursue. After taking into consideration tuition, my area of interest, and activities offered I chose VIU.
When I first applied to VIU I received a transfer-in scholarship that has helped me a lot. While studying, I also received the chance to work as a Graduate Teaching Assistant.
I enjoy being at VIU because I get the chance to gain technical experience from class projects and work on soft skills as a volunteer. There are so many cultures, friendly students and professors to learn from here. I would recommend VIU to all international students for the interesting courses, fun activities, and the diverse cultures. If this is your first time in the U.S. you will feel welcome and at home at VIU.
