Overcoming Homesickness While Studying Abroad

Hello everyone! I am Ambigesh Somasundaram, a Malaysian student at the University of Central Oklahoma. I am a Psychology major. I am glad I share some ways to overcome homesickness that has helped me so far. Being away from home and our loved ones can be hard, but great memories are always created when we do it right.

International Students! Are you ready for your journey to the USA 🇺🇸?


Hello everyone!

I am Sandhra, an MBA (Master of Business Administration) student at UCO (University of Central Oklahoma). I come from the state called “the God’s Own Country,” Kerala in India. I went to the United States on February 1st, 2021, amidst the pandemic. My journey was not as easy and usual as it was before Covid-19. But proper planning and preparing myself for the trip helped me sit for a 24-hour flight without any chaos.

So, I am here to share my pre-departure checklist and explain how I prepared to pack up to move to another country for my studies. The primary thing to always have is your documents and I.D.s such as passport, I-20, etc.

Get Involved!

Hello everyone! My name is Trung (Victor) Vu, and I’m a Vietnamese 🇻🇳 student at the University of Central Oklahoma. I major in Marketing with a minor in Interpersonal Communication. When I first arrived on campus, I was excited yet nerve-wracking to make new friends and discover more about myself and my home away from home.

I’d seen many American college movies: Wild parties, Beer pong, and red Solo cups. On the contrary, the overall college experience I was after was getting that degree and investing my time in academics. I understood the price tag of my education and had no intention of wasting the experience.

Why I love Oklahoma

Hi! My name is Giannina Albines, and you might have already seen me around or in videos. I am in a lot of them! I am from Peru, a country located in South America. I moved to Oklahoma three years ago. I went back to visit Peru once, but since COVID started, I could not go back. During all this time, Oklahoma became my home. There are many reasons why I love Oklahoma, for example, the friendly people, the sky, the BBQ! etc.
