Vietnam Plus3 Study Abroad Program

Welcome to the VietnamPlus3 Study Abroad Program

Recent Updates

Thursday, May 14, 2009 - Greetings! The last few days have flown by!

Tuesday: We began with classes at the university followed by a visit to the US Commercial Service. This government office focuses on increasing exports of US goods by connecting US based companies with potential partners overseas. Very informative! We ended the day with a GREAT dinner at Hollywood Cafe which is run by a young entrepreneur from the US who came to Viet Nam a few years ago.

Wednesday: We spent the majority of this day at UEF, first with classes followed by lunch and then our students joined the English Club for conversation and games. After these informal games, a more intense game of soccer followed. The final score is a little unclear, but I believe that we won, 5-4. Go Pitt!

Today: Today we had a half day. First we visited the Ho Chi Minh City Stock Exchange followed by the War Remnants Museum. Most of us went to the market after that to stock up on a few essential souvenirs. In a few minutes we will be leaving for dinner as a group with a few of our UEF friends.

Tomorrow: We will say goodbye to our UEF friends after classes at a lunch, have a free afternoon and finally a farewell dinner in the evening.
