Q&A with Yousef

Did you attend another school before coming to Penn College?

I finished my associate's degree in my country at Jubail Industrial College, and then I came here to complete the bachelor’s degree.

I’m really happy that I get this experience here at Penn College. This town is amazing, and I’m really glad that I have this experience in the United States in general.

What do you love about Penn College?

I heard about it from my friend. I came here because they accepted most of the classes that I took in my country. When I came here I found that (the town is) really amazing, and I like the college. The teachers are really helpful, and the course materials are really amazing–helpful and easy to understand. I like it so much.

What is your dream job?

My dream job is to become an engineer in plastics–a production engineer.

Any favorite foods since you’ve been here?

Here in the United States, at Christmas, I tried turkey. It was really amazing. I liked it so much. The way they cooked it was really incredible.

In my country, there’s a lot of things. We make Kabsa. It could be lamb over rice or chicken over rice.

Last question…cats or dogs?

Well, for me, cats because I have a cat in my home.
