Q. What made you choose St. Mary's?

St. Mary’s College is a highly ranked college. I chose St. Mary’s because it was a small college and offered the best environment for students. 


Q. What is your favorite course so far?

Social Psychology


Q. If you can only use one word to describe SMCM, what would you say?

A Paradise


Q. Looking back in time, what do you want to say to yourself when you first entered the college?

Do not let yourself down, and there has no difficulties that cannot overcome.


Q. What advice do you have for international students who are thinking of studying in America?

First, you have to clearly know your ability. And you have to have a goal in mind. If you just want to play around without paying efforts, then stay at home. American college is tough. Second, once you decide to study abroad, you have to be strong enough to undertake things both mentally and physically. Because you are all by yourself now!
