Rose Nguyen ’10
“My host grandmother was a P.E.O., and she introduced me to Cottey,” says Rose Nguyen, a Vietnamese exchange student who selected Cottey College because of its excellent chemistry program and the right atmosphere. Rose, who hopes to be a surgeon one day, received P.E.O. and Cottey College international scholarships. She credits Cottey professors and students for being “so welcoming and helpful.” Rose’s defining moment came when she realized Cottey offered her the chance to try new things and to make wonderful friends.
