What shocked you upon coming to the U.S.?

  • My first thought was “where is everyone??” I was shocked to see no one in the streets, hanging out outside, or walking to places.
  • Every stranger around campus acts like your friend. I used to answer every “How are you?’ question honestly, but then I realized it wasn’t really a question, more like a greeting.
  • There are flags everywhere; from small towns to big cities, you see the red, white, and blue flags everywhere.

What do you like best about Valpo & the U.S.?

  • Being in the US is like a world food tour without leaving the country; the diversity means you can savor flavors from everywhere!
