Anh Tran

In Anh's Words

I picked UC as the destination for my higher education because of its Architecture program and the many opportunities UC can offer to students. There are so many possibilities out there at UC, as long as you reach out for them.

I myself had a chance to do a study abroad trip to Paris, my second most favorite country besides Vietnam, through an Honors seminar. I too find excitement getting involved with many different activities on campus, available to everyone even from their first year, namely First Year Leadership Program with the Student Government, French Club, Professional Fraternity, etc. Last summer, I had a chance to work as a Student Orientation Leader, aiding new college students and their families through orientations.

That said, I love being busy and meeting new people, and where else is better to do both of them than UC? UC has the most diverse community I've ever seen, and this is where you can learn from people and grow so much more than you could ever expect. Go Bearcats!
