"Year One: Life at ASU" is a periodic photo series following five freshmen navigating their first year at ASU. This installment checks in on Shuo Zhang as he settles into class and lab work.
The transition to college can be difficult for any freshman navigating new physical and intellectual landscapes. But Zhang has an extra hurdle to cross — adapting to a place where English is the primary language. Zhang, a native of China, speaks the language well, but he still wants to work on his skills, which is why he's taking Intro to Academic Writing. There's another plus to his course — the class has a few Chinese students who have helped ease his transition to life in America.
See what Shuo was up to earlier in the semester in this past gallery:
