#1) Transforming from Passive Student to Active Advocate: Shu Wen’s Story
They talked about how free the U.S. education is and they talked about liberal arts education where if you are undecided of what your major is you can try a couple of disciplines first until you find your passion.

#2) Do You Know How to Give an ‘American Hug?’
Topics covered: (1) How to recognize an American; (2) how to greet an American you’ve just met; (3) how to greet an American after having a few beers.
#3) Don’t Study in the US (or, How to Make an Informed Choice): Part 1
Although female education is being promoted very rapidly, parents don’t like to risk sending their daughters overseas to study…. As far as I am concerned, I hope to get graduated from Pakistan.
