AEE Adventures Episode 5: What It’s Like to Be a Grad Student from Sri Lanka in Toledo

Suren is a PhD student from Sri Lanka.

We took a walk in the downtown area of Toledo and I asked him about his life as an international student in the US.

  • Why it’s hard to get a car in Sri Lanka and how it’s easier here
  • How he feels after living in the US for a few years
