1. How has your time at the University helped prepare you for success? Do you have a job/grad school lined up?

Participating in various events over the two years has helped me improve my presentation and event management skills. The call campaigns every semester which required calling students from 10-15 different countries helped me improve my customer service, sales and marketing skills. The team environment at the admissions office as well as the class room helped me learn how to work in a team environment. The College of Business has helped me become an international citizen. I am pretty sure I will be able to get a job in any country I want in this world. I am so lucky to have done my MBA from University of New Haven. I highly recommend University of New Haven to all the international students!

The University has diverse course offerings, most teachers have previously worked in the field that they are teaching to the students. Additionally there are many extra curricular options on campus to please all interests!
Overall, I've had a very positive experience at the University of New Haven. As an English major, I've found the classes and professors to be excellent. There is a great selection of English courses offered (including special topics like Science Fiction, Women's Literature, and Freelance Writing) and the staff is well connected and always willing to help students. My only critique of the school is room and board. There is not nearly enough campus sponsored housing for students, so rooms are not guaranteed to upperclassmen. Housing selection is so competitive that it is actually one of the most stressful things about school. Other than that, I am happy at this university.
