Southampton is the perfect university city: quiet, old and full of interesting people
Favorite food from home country
It is Nigerian Jollof Rice. It is perhaps the quintessential Nigerian party food. It is so popular it has become part of our country’s culinary culture. You can never go wrong serving your Nigerian friends jollof rice.
Considering what you now know, if there is only one thing you could tell you old self while you were coming to Southampton, what will it be?
I will say relax, enjoy your time here but be prepared to be tested in unexpected ways. Talk to people and ask questions. But above all, engage with the school, the city and the wonderful environment because before you know, the year is gone and all you will have is the memory of all you did.
Where are you from? Vietnam
What programme did you study? Marketing Management
Favorite thing about Southampton? Nice view of the Sea
Can you name a happy moment when studying in Southampton? When I got home late, was hungry, had no food left on the fridge, nothing beats the pizza offered by my Mexican flatmate. He even made it for me after saying “It is going to take a while to make it so please go into your room to rest, I will knock on the door when it is ready”.
In your opinion, what is British Culture? Please describe by using few simple words. Fish and Chips, politeness and kindness, they love talking/complaining about the weather, Afternoon Tea, ice-cream & pudding, British humour, queuing, Shakespeare, dogs and dogs everywhere.
