  • Hometown: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
  • Majors: Accounting, Business Management Concentrating in Marketing

What activities/organizations are you involved in? Parkside Asian Organization (PAO), Parkside International Club (PIC) and Parkside American Marketing Association (PAMA)

Where will you live in the fall? Kenosha, WI 

Best place to study: Student Involvement Center by PAO office. I can always find friends there to study with.

Best place to eat in Kenosha or Racine: Saigon Café. It's nice to sometimes find the taste of my country. The food there is excellent! 

Favorite activity/place off-campus: Parkside is my second home. I will try to spend most of my time on campus doing homework, hanging out with friends, participating in events or visiting professors. However, Kenosha has countless places, especially restaurants to visit and a beautiful lakefront to view and enjoy an off-day.

Best class so far: Digital Art by instructor Judith. I consider myself as a left-brained person so signing up for art is an adventure to see if I had any right-brained talent. Judith has made the class easy and fun.

Best Professor: Thomas Boyd has to be the best professor so far, as far as lecturing. The class I took was Business Law II. Law was always my weakness, however, this class was lectures only and they were very interesting and interactive. I would sign up for that class again if I could. 

Best thing about being a student at UW-P: Countless opportunities. As a transfer student from a big community college, I was surprised with the opportunities for leadership and personal development I received at a smaller-size university: organization events, community projects, volunteer opportunities, informational sessions… 

Why did you pick UW-P? As an international student, my school's location options were limited to ANYWHERE. UW-P was my pick over others because it has an excellent business programs, and small school environment that allow me to expand my connections to professors and faculty.

Best advice for getting the most out of college: My favorite quote is from Abraham Lincoln "And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years." No one knows where you will be in the future so why not take chances when you can in college. Look into other majors, minors, volunteers, and involvement to make your time worth.
