Chris’s Trip to the Middle East

He was however, over in the Middle East, meeting up with agents, and recruiting new students to the college!

Chris started his started his trip in Saudi Arabia, then flew to Jordan, ending his Middle Eastern trip in Oman, which he thorougly enjoyed and is thankful for the opportunity he was given and the warm hospitality he received while over there.

Here is what Chris had to say about his trip:

“There were lots of sand dust, and old buildings. Men were dressed in white turbans, and the ladies were faceless wearing black habibs. Overall though, I had a great time جزاكم الله خيراً.”

So keep your eyes open for more Middle Eastern students.
