Why did you decide to study at IUPUI?
The university I was attending in Malaysia has an affiliation with IUPUI which is how I discovered IUPUI. I also wanted to experience university life while living in the city. I love being able to meet people from all over the world here in

How do you feel about the classes and professors at IUPUI?
Professors can be pretty strict, especially in my field, but I have always found them to be helpful and invested in making sure their students succeed in the real world.

What was your favorite thing about Indianapolis?
I loved the accessibility of everything! If I needed anything for a class, or if I just wanted to go shopping or go out with friends, it was all within walking distance or a short drive. There’s also an abundance of food here in the city. You will never get bored!

What advice or encouragement would you give to international students who are considering attending IUPUI?
Coming to IUPUI has been one of the greatest decisions I’ve made. The classes are smaller, the professors are genuinely interested in teaching and helping their students succeed, there’s an abundance of volunteer opportunities, I’m able to connect with people from all over the world, and I have quick and easy to access to just about anything my heart desires. IUPUI has helped me branch out and try new things. I have learned so much about myself during my time here! I recommend all students come to IUPUI with an open mind to experience university and city life, and make their own unique and wonderful journey just like I have.
