Presentation for Lao Students: College Life in the USA

The U.S. Embassy Vientiane hosted an event for Lao students about college life in the United States, given by Megan O’Brien, a student intern at the embassy. Over 60 high school and college students attended the event, which was held at the American Corner at Lao-American College.

Students learned about the American college classroom, living on campus, dormitories, roommates, cafeterias, clubs, and activities on campus. The presentation was fun and interactive, and the audience asked a variety of questions about life at an American college or university.

The goal of this event was to get students excited about studying in the United States by learning about what everyday life is like at an American college. After the presentation, many students expressed strong interest in learning more about educational opportunities available to Lao students to study at American college and universities.
