"The University Park Campus is among the most favourite things for me here because it is very large with many classic buildings and many green trees everywhere. And after I finish class, I enjoy going by the lake and see the swimming ducks and geese and watch the squirrels running around. It is very relaxing."

– Khanh Ha Phan, studying MA International Relations
