“Before coming to the US, I was able to talk to many people and it was easy for me to decide on UNK. Once I started at UNK, that support was continuously there. Regular check-ups from both the Honors Program and the International Office made it easy to keep up with what was going on. I could always reach out or stop at their offices to ask for advice if I ran into a problem or had a question. This was very helpful and one of the reasons why I was able to successfully complete my degree.”
