"This program does not only teach you about the academic world, but also your own position within the society. It allows for self-growth, a quality which is not present in all programs or fields. [...] I can proudly say that I am not only leaving with a piece of paper, in other words the degree, but also with an abundance of memories and knowledge that I can use in the future."

– Nurul Noor (BA '18)
