What do our international alumni say about their experience at UNK?

"I graduated from University of Nebraska Kearney on May 6, 2016! I cannot express my appreciation with any words toward my family, friends, and professors who supported me in Kearney and from Japan.  I'm looking forward to where my future takes me. At the same time, I'm sad to leave Kearney, Nebraska, my second hometown. Life in Kearney made me strong and provided me with wonderful experiences and memories. Thank you again everyone I met in Kearney. I know it's not the last time to say goodbye. We can meet again somewhere in the world. So I should say ”See you next time."” Rika Asai, Japan, Class of 2016

"I'm glad to tell you that I am soon to be an official petroleum engineer. Being a student of the UNK English Language Institute has been the best experience of my life. Thanks to all of you, people that I will never forget, I am the person that I am right now."  Paula Alejandra Espinosa Franca, Colombia

"Life is certainly unpredictable. I never thought I would end up here but now I feel I am lucky enough to be one of those who got to enjoy the opportunities. UNK has been one of the most amazing experiences and a second home away from home. I made lots of friends and had an awesome time in these four years of life.  Now I am heading back home for a better future. I am glad that I have memories that will never fade away.  It is hard to put in to words, but I will definitely miss Kearney and all the beautiful peopleUNK International Facebook page I met along this journey. Goodbye UNK and my friends. I hope to meet you all again." Sushma Thapa, Bhutan, Class of 2013
