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!

Overall, my experience at UNH was positive and very rewarding. I was a nontraditional commuter student; therefore, party scenes were not a priority. My focus was to get an education, earn my degree and move forward. The professors I encountered provided challenging assignments which geared learning towards my current knowledge of the course subject. Did they know everything? Of course not. Who does? My academic experience at UNH helped me to research topics and think outside the box, kept me on my toes, and prepared me for the real world. Since graduating, I have obtained my Masters Degree, and taught as an Adjunct Professor at another university. And, I must acknowledge that my accomplishments were possible because of my undergraduate success at UNH.
This coming fall I will be a sophomore at the University of New Haven, and from my personal experience the university is really dedicated to helping its students with academics, adjusting to college life, even writing a resume or applying for a job. The university is very inclusive and encourages diversity. The campus is beautiful and there is always something to do around campus. Also getting involved at the university is highly encouraged, as there are many clubs and sports teams to be apart of. The university could use some housing updates, and the food could be better but is not terrible. More tutors are needed in the center for learning resources, because I feel enough aren't available. Lastly, the surrounding area outside of the school is a little rundown, but downtown New Haven is really cool and I would definitely recommend checking it out.
