SUCCESS STORIES. HEAR IT FROM THEM.

RUI LING, FOX  SCHOOL OF BUSINESS ’17

MAJOR: HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

Activities: American Thanksgiving program, community service

Home City: Nanning, China

“I was attracted to Fox School of Business’
high-quality education, elite alumni and abundant networking opportunities. And Temple professors excel at teaching international students because they know when to slow down the pace for us.” 

BACH DANG, FOX SCHOOL OF BUSINESS ’15

MAJOR: FINANCE; RISK MANAGEMENT AND INSURANCE

Activities: Gamma Iota Sigma (society for risk management students), Ascend (Pan-Asian leaders)

Home city: Hanoi, Vietnam

“It’s nerve-racking to speak in front of 25 people. But giving classroom presentations helped me feel more confident in speaking English.  I am a lot more comfortable in class now, and I’m no longer afraid of even talking with strangers.”

SAMANTHA LOPEZ, COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS ’17

MAJOR: PSYCHOLOGY

Activities: TV anchor for Temple’s Spanish-language news update

Home City: Doha, Qatar (citizen of Venezuela)

“I wanted to attend a large research university with an urban campus that was close to other East Coast cities.  Temple offers an enormous number of classes, which are very enriching and challenging. Time spent outside the classroom is fun too.”

MAHMOUD ALDOUKHI, COLLEGE OF PUBLIC HEALTH PROFESSIONS AND SOCIAL WORK ’17

MAJOR: PUBLIC HEALTH

Activities: Volunteer for Alcoholics Anonymous, international-student recruitment assistant

Home City: Dammam, Saudi Arabia

“There are many international students at Temple, and this gives you the chance to meet new people and experience other cultures. And it’s really easy to get good food here too.”

MAKE TEMPLE YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME.
