Students from Andong National University were selected for Kentucky State University’s one-month foreign exchange program because of their outstanding grades in English.

The students participated in many activities as they practiced writing, reading and conversation in English. They attended basketball games, presented information in classes and read to students at KSU’s Rosenwaldesl photo 2 Center for Families and Children.

“I came to America for the sightseeing and education,” Do Jae Hong said early in the group’s visit to America. “I have been here for three days, and my favorite part was being in Chicago and visiting the Water Tower.”

When asked what they liked most about visiting Kentucky State University, many of the students said they really enjoyed the food and the cafeteria.
