Tips for BU’s Newest International Students: Chrissie Chinebuah

September 11, 2019 0 By Stanley Isaacs


Growing up in Ghana, I had everyone around
me who was from the same place, knew the same food, the same music. So coming to BU, it
was like I was a drop in an ocean. It was kind of up to me to feel I was still
at home and bring my culture with me. So what I advise that you should do when you
get here is of course find a student body that’s a culture group that represents your
culture from back home. So at least you kind of cured that homesick
feeling. Something that played an extremely
fundamental role in helping me feel welcome here was joining the African Student Organization. I remember my first meeting when I went there,
I just, I felt like I was back in Ghana. Ever since then I’ve just been part of ASO and
ASO has really helped me settle into BU.
