MY EXCEPTIONAL STORY
I learned about the University of Mount Union at a college fair held in Hanoi last year. I chose Mount because out of all the schools that accepted my applications, they offered me the largest scholarship and financial aid. I love the small and beautiful campus.
Favorite Campus Spot
I would have to say that the library is my favorite place. I spend most of my time studying and working there. People can find everything they need for their studies and research. Also, it is where I enjoy a quiet moment once in a while.
I never had a chance to visit any other colleges in the U.S., but one thing that sets Mount Union apart from others for sure is that I truly love it.
Preparing for Success
I believe Mount Union is providing me with important knowledge and hands-on experiences so that I can continue my education in graduate school and make my dream come true, which is to be a physics professor. Mount’s liberal arts education is important because it fosters critical thinking and analytical skills that are extremely important for students to adapt to a rapidly changing workforce.
Physics opens up a world full of mysteries that I crave to unravel. It not only provides us knowledge about space, but it helps us to understand how and why we exist and continue to develop in this world.
So far, my favorite class is Introduction to Art. Art has taught me a new way to approach the world and look closely at every simple thing.
My favorite professors are Dr. Ekey and Dr. C. They are both excellent professors who are always willing to help me with problems, and they inspire me to become a physics professor.
I have an ambition to be a physics professor because I would have better opportunities to study physics, and more importantly, to inspire future generations to take up an interest in physics.
