Being apart of the OU Cousins program this fall semester has opened many new paths for me. At the beginning of the semester, I was matched with my OU Cousin. He is Australian, and will be returning after this semester. Throughout this past fall, I have been given various opportunity to meet other foreign exchange students as well. My OU Cousins, along with the OU Cousins program, allowed me to create new connections with people I never would’ve outside of it. This was an enriching experience, asI have learned about numerous cultures. In addition, I found my roommate for next year through the OU Cousins program. I can’t wait to be paired with another cousin in the Spring.
