“The biggest surprise for me would [be] the size of the international community here in St. Thomas and the welcoming atmosphere that it gives me. When I came here, I expected to be in a small international community, but I got to meet with many friends who are culturally different from me, and I have also met with current international students who got to be friends with some of my American friends.”
- Hy Nguyen, International Student, Vietnam
“Even though many of us come from different cultures and countries, we still have a lot in common. I get to be introduced to new cultures through events that are being held and also just by talking to the other international students. I think it is cool to know that you have friends from all around the world. Also, having some Norwegian friends here makes me feel closer to home, and it has become a safe place where I can be myself 100%, and we can celebrate Norwegian holidays and traditions together.”
- Julie Tømmerberg, International Student, Norway
