This semester I decided to join OU Cousins. OU Cousins is an organization on campus which strives to break down the barriers between American and international students. The program matches international students with American students according to hobbies, majors, and countries of special interest. Once paired, students are given the opportunity to spend time together at monthly events. My OU Cousin is an international student from Rwanda. I love getting to know her and meeting her international friends as well. So far, OU Cousins has been an incredible experience. I have really enjoyed meeting people who come from such different backgrounds with varying life perspectives.
