From Student Blogger, Komz: Redlands International Student Association

A lot of diversity organizations exist at the University of Redlands.

However, there have always been a few international students that haven’t been able to find their space in any of these organizations. Leer más

From Student Blogger, Wendy: The Book in Seattle and the Panama Hotel

My friend Loreen applied to Seattle University (SeattleU) because of a book called, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. You would think that kind of romantic-meant-to-be moment would happen to me, the English Major that reads a lot and makes some life choices based on what certain characters would do, but unfortunately destiny only fixed it all that way for Loreen.

From Student Blogger, Komz: 3+2 Engineering Program with Columbia University!

A lot of people don’t consider liberal arts universities when applying to colleges because they don’t believe they can get the technical or engineering knowledge they need. The assumption is that liberal arts universities focus more on the social sciences and humanities. However, this is no longer the case at many liberal arts colleges. In fact, a lot of liberal arts schools offer combined degree programs with other engineering colleges. Leer más

A few weeks ago, our college’s international director went to Shenzhen, China. Before my director went to Shenzhen, she asked me if my mother had free time so that they could have a dinner together. I was very happy about it because the main reason she went to China was to do recruiting for the college. Even though she was busy, she still took time to meet my mother and talk with her. Leer más

What it’s Like Being an International Student-Athlete in the U.S.

Hi! My name is Oda H. Hovland and I am a student-athlete at Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Michigan. I grew up in the suburbs west of Oslo city center, Norway. During my upbringing, my parents always reminded me to think of life after high school and which educational path I would like to take. In addition to school, Nordic skiing has always been a huge part of my life and I did not like the thought of letting go of this for the benefit of studies. In Norwegian universities the option to do both is non-existent; you are either a full-time student or a full-time athlete. Therefore I was very lucky when I was in my senior year of high school I received an email from the coach at Michigan Tech who wanted to recruit me for the women’s Nordic Ski Team roster, class of 2022. He also had a scholarship to provide, which of course would help the economic situation a lot. After a few rounds with my parents and the coach I accepted the request and was thankful for the opportunity to call myself a Michigan Tech Huskies athlete. Leer más

From Student Blogger, Ayaka: Women’s Leadership Conference

Sometime... or most of the time, we tend to think we have to meet people’s expectations. What happened to me long time ago when I had my hair cut short was that someone said, “You looked better with your hair long.” A longer time ago, a boy said to me, “You are strange because you like blue color though you are a girl!” I was like.... What, I don’t care about your opinion. I did and do so because I wanted to do so. Women should be like this, men should do it like this way... don’t you limit your possibility? Leer más
