Hi everyone, my name is Duyen Su and I am from Vietnam. I am currently freshman at University of St. Thomas, majoring in Biological Science. I love talking to other people, hanging out with my friends, making new friends, and doing science research. Why did I choose America? Everyone always said that the U.S. was the Holy Grail of Higher education. You can study any subject you can think of. Whether you want to study specific subject in business like marketing, international business, finance, chemical engineering, or philosophy; you can study whatever you want to in the US. That idea is really attractive to me. I want to explore the new things, figure out what I am into and challenge myself to live independently. These reasons brought me to St. Thomas – a wonderful community. People are friendly, nice and willing to help others. The weather is cold but gorgeous, especially when it comes to Christmas. There are lights everywhere on streets; people decorate their house. People give gifts to others, gather around and have some hot chocolate. That’s my favorite time of the year. Not only that, a ton of opportunities in researching are available at U.S. universities. Practical […]

Hi, my name is Dominique Stewart, and I am an international student at St. Thomas. I am a 19-year-old Jamaican who is currently pursuing a degree in Actuarial Science. I currently speak three languages with English and Jamaican Patois being my native languages and French a second language. I enjoy being with friends, laughing and having a good time. When I have spare time, I am usually glued to my phone screen, scrolling through social media. If I am not on social media, then I am usually watching one of the latest series on Netflix or watching anime on Crunchyroll. My favorite card game is Yu-Gi-Oh and I absolutely enjoy playing it online with tons of persons from around the world. To stay in shape, I do swimming from time to time. My personal goal in life is to remain happy in whatever I agree to do, and in doing so, I make others around me just as happy.  St. Thomas has been a good fit for me because the Actuarial Science program here is terrific! St Thomas is known as a center for excellence in Actuarial Science, which means that it has one of the top success actuarial science program rate in […]

  Navn og alder: Jenny Birkeland, 20 år    Hvilken grad tar du, og hvor langt i studieforløpet er du kommet?: International Studies og Political Science, andre semester som Sophomore.   Fortell oss om dine opplevelser som student ved skolen: Jeg bor for tiden på campus, som vil si at jeg har veldig kort vei til klasserommene. Jeg tar fire fag, og hvert fag møtes to eller tre ganger i uka i ca 1-1.5 timer hver gang. Timene har jeg spredt utover dagen fra 8 til 17. Mellom timene gjør jeg som oftest lekser sammen med venner i skolens «Student Center», også spiser jeg lunsj. Skolen har et fantastisk utvalg av ressurser når det kommer til skolehjelp, som «tutors» i diverse fag, og et «writing center» som hjelper deg med å skrive lengre oppgaver.   Hjelpen jeg fikk hos SONOR: SONOR var utrolig flinke til å svare på spørsmål og hjelpe meg i søknadsprosessen. Jeg fikk mye hjelp når det kom til helseforsikring og visumprosessen.   Er det noe du skulle ønske at du visste før du reiste til skolen?: Sett deg inn i skolens krav til fag innenfor de diverse majorene du vurderer i tillegg til hvilke fellesfag de krever, […]
