How will being part of the IUPUI Community help you reach your future goals?
As the vice-president of the Saudi Students Club at IUPUI, I have become a different person. I learned how to manage my time. I also developed the courage to speak with different people, while improving my communication and educational skills. This allowed me to get involved in more social activities and make new friends.


Why did you choose IUPUI over other universities?
I chose to come to IUPUI because it is an urban campus located very close to downtown Indianapolis. I also had many friends who got acepted here. In addition, many Saudi companies value Purdue’s Engineering degrees, so I decided to study at the Purdue School of Engineering at IUPUI to help me get a job easily after I graduate.

What activities and events have you participated in at IUPUI? 
I have participated in many events with the Saudi Students Club, in addition to other clubs like the Muslim Student Association and the International Club. One of the most important events on campus that I participated in was the Saudi National Day. We spent three months preparing for it, but at the end it was all worth it. It was nice seeing people getting exposed to my culture.
