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

  • The food: it just doesn’t have the spices & freshness of the food back home!
  • Cucumbers (and other vegetables) look different in US than in Jordan.
  • No waste basket next to toilet! An absolute standard in Jordan.

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

  • The sunny weather & blue skies, not dreary like London can be.
  • Faculty are very nice! No bad faculty.

If you were given a flight ticket today, it would be to…

  • Visit home, especially to eat real shawarma & see friends and family.
