WU’s international students
Mohammed Haqbani, freshmen business administration major, is from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Some of Haqbani’s memories from home are gathering to eat and celebrate as a large family. A staple food in his family is Kabsah, considered the national dish of Saudi Arabia by many, consisting of rice, spices, meat and vegetables.
Haqbani said that traffic in the United States is very different for him. He said that he was not used to the traffic lights that have green arrows signalling cars to turn. In Riyadh, Haqmani said that the traffic laws aren’t as strict.
