The one thing that surprised him about Middle Georgia State was ... "How nice are people in this area."

His favorite place to study is ... "My dorm because it's quiet and nobody can interrupt me when I need to be focused."

His friends make fun of him because ... "Sometimes my friends in the U.S. make fun of me because of different customs I have since I am an international student."
