“Hello guys! My name is Sabrina, and here are some things I like about YSU: People around here are so friendly, warm and helpful. As an international student, I believe, I couldn't have made this far without the assistance and affection. Also the diversity and the fact is every culture, every individual is appreciated in here. What I like about ISO: ISO helps you with communication, management and provides a platform to present your opinions. This helps you to grow as a person in every aspect of life!” ✨ 🇧🇩
