Trran Tuan Portrait

Name:  Tran Tuan Kiet Nguyen
Country: Vietnam
Major: Biology

Tran chose Citrus College for its transferable units and affordable price tag that made it very attractive. As a Biology major, Tran Tuan Kiet has a demanding schedule with many challenging classes. When mentioning the difficult courses, he noted the STEM center as “fantastic”. The students there are friendly and helpful and the tutoring is phenomenal.
In reference to the campus, he says its small, easily traversable, and the diverse population provide lots of intrigue as you can make friends from all over the world in one cozy place. 
He advises future students, “If you are an international student, go to Citrus College to save money and transfer.”
