The United States Consulate General in Lagos will host a Google Hangout on Tuesday, April 26, 2016, at 3 p.m., to respond to questions from the public on the U.S. student visa applications process and about living and studying in the United States. 

During the one hour Google Hangout session, questions will be directed to two American Consular Officers and an Education USA Advisor who will share practical information about the process of obtaining a U.S. student visa. 

Two Nigerians currently living and studying in the United States will also share their experiences during the one-hour live session.
