[STUDENT AMBASSADOR] Alex Kleis - Building Memories While Studying Abroad

1. Tell us about your most memorable experience while studying abroad in the U.S.

The first day I got to spend on campus in my dorm was an extraordinary experience. Not only did it mark the beginning of the four years I was about to start spending in the U.S., but I got to meet some of my best friends that day and have lots of fun with them! Since then, we have spent so much time together, doing fun activities and even taking classes together, that this first day marks the start of the wonderful adventure I have been taking part in for a year now.

2. Can you share with us what your average day as a student is like at UPenn? 

The day often starts by attending my morning classes, and working on assignments if I have some free time. I always try to grab lunch with friends on campus, to catch up on what has been going on. I often have a couple of afternoon classes, and use my free time to work on assignments and group projects. Towards the end of the afternoon, I usually reach back my dorm, do some physical exercise, and find a spot to grab dinner with friends if I don’t happen to have too much work! The evening is often spent with friends at either some campus group’s event, whether a group performance or a social event, or just having a good time in a green space on campus or in a dorm room.

3. What are your hopes after graduation? 

As many of my friends, I am quite unsure about life after graduation. At the moment, I have several ideas in mind for my future, but I really want to work internationally. A U.S. degree will surely help me achieve my objective!


Hello everyone, my name is Alexandre Kleis and I am a rising sophomore at the University of Pennsylvania, planning to major in Systems Engineering. Living in various countries across Europe in my childhood, I decided to pursue my higher education in the United States.
