After I finished my Bachelor’s degree from Thailand. I decided to come to the US and pursued my Master’s Degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management because my home country is well known in terms of the tourism industry. I was looking for an affordable and accredited University provided that major in Washington DC area and VIU is a great fit for me.
My experience at VIU was unforgettable. As an international student studied abroad for the first time, it made me feel overwhelmed at first but my classmates and VIU’s staffs helped me get through it. I spent time outside the class with my classmates and we all had fun exploring the Northern Virginia area.
VIU is full of a student from around the world. I had a great opportunity to learn not only the academic part but also about my classmate’s background and it was always interesting when I get to know more about other cultures.
VIU has changed me to be a better version of myself. I learned to respect others and at the same time improved my communication skills. From all the activities inside and outside the classroom, it helped me think outside the box, prepared me to be ready to work professionally and become successful in my career. I am so glad that I made the right decision joining here and finally made my parents proud.
