During my recent visit to the University of Wyoming, I came across two women chattering away in Mandarin Chinese. While one was Chinese, the other was from Saipan, a small island in the South Pacific that is within the US Commonwealth (like Puerto Rico or Guam). Her name is Jennifer “J.J.” Jang, and she’s a senior majoring in international studies and education.
I asked this poised young woman how on earth she landed in Laramie. She turned down offers from New York University and the University of Florida in favor of the fresh air, outdoor activities, and laid back environment of the University of Wyoming.
Listen to how she made her college choice and what she thinks of her decision.
