This week’s Student Snapshot is Mark Cooper. Mark is a Freshman. He’s an international student all the way from Bundaberg, Australia. Let’s check in and see if Prescott College is making him feel welcome. G’Day, Mark.
Sd’A: How are you liking America so far?
MC: It’s cold.
Sd’A: Ha! Yes, you’re probably used to sunshine and surfing weather. Anything else?
Sd’A: Okay, moving on. Are you taking any classes here that you can’t take back in Australia?
MC: Yeah, American History. You guys did a lot of horrible things to Native Americans.
Sd’A: Any advice for other international students who are trying to adapt to U.S. college life?
MC: Look left first when you cross the street.
Sd’A: All right. How about social activities? Planning to get involved in any sports or clubs?
MC: Apparently I’m rushing. Whatever that means.
Sd’A: You mean a fraternity?
MC: You tell me.
Sd’A: Thank you so much for your time, Mark. It’s been great learning about your experience as an international student!
