"Affordable tuition and the location brought me to Kearney from Senegal, but the community and people are the reason that I stayed. Dr. Longo was one of my favorite professors, and he helped me grow not only personally but also professionally. I was also so grateful for the support from the Office of International Education. They are the reason that I decided to work in international education. My advice to international students is to get involved and live on-campus!"
