    What I found really special about the U.S. as a college destination in comparison to other places, I think is how much attention they place on the college experience, I think coming to college here becomes a lot more than just your academics. It becomes clubs, it becomes all your friendships. They become like your family here. So I think that, you know, the college experience and living with everyone that you go to school with and just building those relationships really adds to the to the experience.
