Thinking about studying in the United States?
Hear why these international students chose American University and what their experience is like so far.
Li, a recent Auburn Global and Auburn University alumna, gained practical, hands-on experience during her clinical residency as a graduate intern at Auburn Global. Throughout the semester Li worked closely with an Auburn Global Reading and Writing class, providing assistance with classroom activities and teaching some classes on her own.
“Auburn is a melting pot of cultures. I’ve made friends from more than 15 countries during my time here by going to different campus events, which made me feel comfortable and right at home. Everyone in Auburn, including complete strangers, greets you when you walk by. This feeling of belonging is the Auburn family.”
Auburn Global plans events and arranges opportunities to help me make American friends. This has allowed me to become more confident. I also enjoy meeting with my student services advisor because it gives me another opportunity to improve my speaking skills.
In celebration of World Poetry Day on March 21, more than 50 students gathered to witness a poetry contest hosted by the Peace Corps at Auburn, the International Buddy Program, and Auburn Global. Ten students competed with an array of original and famous poems. Nelson Muthanji, Auburn Global student and avid poet, served as the host of the event and was awarded first place for his original poem entitled “Time.”
