Now at George Washington University

 

I majored in New Media Studies at Alma College. Each of my classmates had their own interests and strong points, which make their works special. Meanwhile, our professors kept encouraging us to have a bold dream but also work on the small things. During those two years as a student, I joined several clubs and fraternities, and also had an on-campus job. These experiences gave me a chance to meet new people with different cultural background. I’m now studying at George Washington University as a graduate student. Those two years’ study gives me a solid foundation for graduate study.

 

邹媛媛 2017年毕业于阿尔玛文理学院,现就读于乔治亚华盛顿大学

在阿尔玛文理学院我就读的是新媒体专业。我的同学们都有他们感兴趣的地方和专长,这使得他们的作品很独特。同时,我的教授们一直鼓励我们要有大胆的想法,也要求我们要从小处着手。在两年的学生生涯中,我加入了一些社团和兄弟会,并有一份校内工作。这些经验为我提供了认识拥有不同文化背景的新朋友的机会。现在我在乔治华盛顿大学读研究生,两年在阿尔玛的学习为我的研究生奠定了坚实的基础。

My home country is

China

I am

an alumnus/alumna

I'm studying

Communications/New Media Studies

I'm involved in

tutoring for Chinese language. I also attend the International Club (IClub) meetings and events.

I chose Alma College because

I’m part of a 2+2 transfer degree program with Alma and my university, Tianjin Foreign Studies University (TFSU). I also wanted to experience study abroad in the U.S.

The Alma community is

really friendly. People here are very helpful. Learn how to communicate better with people. Here, there are good relationships between students and teachers. It’s a good life here and you’re free to learn anything. 

I'd advise a new student becoming a Scot

to just be yourself and be nice to others. 

My accomplishments while attending Alma have been

volunteering in the community, speaking and writing English better, working with art in different forms of media. 

My professional career goals are

to attend Columbia University in New York for my master’s degree.
