AMERICAN SUMMERS - THANK YOU


During the 3-month summer break, Malaysian students all over US take time to travel. Some may attend summer classes, others earn extra income with  part-time jobs. 

In many universities, there are a number of Malaysian students, thus, easy for them to travel in groups for long distances in their own or rented cars. Along the way they stopover or overnight at fellow students' accommodations, motels or at campsites.

USA is a very big country and has innumerable scenic and beautiful places to visit. Pictures below are reminiscence of student days at LSU, 1974-1978.

Students travel criss-cross the wide expanse of the country. Washington Monument, Washington D.C.

Homecoming at Louisiana State University campus, Baton Rouge. The university was established in 1860.


After a few summers we graduated (1976) with first degree at LSU. Diploma students from the College of Agriculture, Serdang are given advanced standing  admission as juniors where they need only 2 years to complete bachelor's degree. Yours truly, rightmost.
