'I love the fact that everyone cares about each other'

May  25, 2012

Among Augustana's graduates on Sunday was Ly Pham, a student from Vietnam.

She majored in accounting and business administration (finance and international business), and plans to earn a master's of accounting at The Ohio State University.

Before she came to Augustana, she had never been to the U.S.  

She said:

"I think what I liked the most, surprised me the most about Augie was it is very welcoming, it has a very welcoming culture, and everyone was very interested to learn about me and my country, where I'm from, and at the same time they gave me the opportunities to learn about American culture and about them as individuals."

Ly Pham was chosen by faculty as one of this year's outstanding seniors and was featured in the "More Than I Imagined" series of stories about them.
