OUR VISIT TO THE AMERICAN EMBASSY BUILDING FOR A UNIVERSITY SUMMIT

On the 23rd of March 2024, I and 10 other students were selected as part of meeting the criteria for a visit to the American embassy building in town for a university summit. We set off at 8:30 am and reached the venue by 9:30 am. The summit was attended by several schools including, Vienna College, Kabojja International School, King's College Buddo, Taibah, etc.


The schools in attendance were given a talk on the requirements for application to the different universities in the United States and among those requirements were good grades, a personal achievement record, and financial aid to mention a few. It was a very interesting talk that helped me find so many resources for university application seeing as I am finishing my final year and so it was very insightful and a timely opportunity for me to be in attendance.


Thereafter, the talk ended, and we were treated to breakfast by our hosts and given time to socialize with the other people at the summit. After breakfast, we were given time to tour the different university tables. My friend Phylicia and I began with Birmingham Young University (BYU) a Mormon college in Utah that values strong religious beliefs and has a strong liberal arts program. Thereafter we toured various other university tables asking any questions about anything we were unsure about. The university that stood out to me was the University of Michigan (not to be confused with Michigan State University) due to its impressive architecture, financial aid plan and impressive undergraduate and graduate courses in my desired field of study. 


The summit ended and we began our journey back to school with a pitstop for lunch and thereafter returned to school. It was a very interesting experience with a lot of insightful information and I'm very grateful for the opportunity I was given to be in attendance.
