Palau and FSM Students Study in the U.S.

“It was the first snow of the season, and while most Scranton students walked through campus unfazed, one student was quite literally jumping for joy. First-year student Bailechesel “OJ” Tumechub is from Palau, an island country of sunshine and palm trees, a place where the temperature averages from 76 degrees to 89 degrees throughout the year.

“I was walking and the snow was hitting my face,” said Tumechub. “At first I thought it was rain. I thought, ‘What is this?’ When I realized it was snow, I started jumping. I put my tongue out to catch it.”- Excerpt from Scranton Journal- follow the story at:
