Yuyang, SIS/BA '15
As an international student from China, studying in a university in the United States is a big move in my life. However, when I received my admission letter and found out that I was accepted to the Global Scholars Program, I chose American University without hesitation. The Global Scholars Program is far more than a three-year BA program. It gathers a group of ambitious students who come from various backgrounds, yet share a similar passion for bringing about positive changes to our world. As part of the Global Scholars Program, I have access to exclusive Study Abroad Programs and foundation courses, support from the faculty in designing my three-year study plan, as well as various additional activities outside the classroom that give me real world applications in the field of International Relations. As a Global Scholar, I have the opportunity to design and decide my own educational path. I picked this unique program to help pave my future, and I know it is going to be a fantastic three years here!
