Was lately thinking about furthering my education and while browsing for some ideas I stumbled on this interesting post: "First Libyan students arrive in the US since 1980 "
For the first time since 1980, Libyan nationals are enrolled at a US
university. Oklahoma State University welcomed 7 Libyan students after
diplomatic ties were reestablished between the US and Libya.
The bloggers also provide a link to the OSU paper , here is an excerpt :
Bahaeddin Elhmidi is the youngest of the international students. At 19 and
fresh out of high school, Elhmidi admitted he wasn’t quite as enthusiastic as
the others.“I’ve been homesick since my first day,” Elhmidi said.Elhmidi left
behind several brothers and sisters in Libya, and a “special person” that
brought a smile to his face. He said everyone at OSU and in Stillwater has been
“more than nice” and so far he has enjoyed meeting all the new people the most.
Good luck to them and we are proud of you guys . I wish they could start a blog so that we follow their adventures and so that Baha's girlfriend erm... 'special person' can keep and eye on him :P
