What Piece of advice would you give an international student who ​​​is beginning the university search process?

Find your best fit!  As an international student, it is extremely critical to find what fits their requirement. International students come from various backgrounds including financial, cultural and educational background. In my view, the student should try to look at the ability to pay for their education, adaptability of the cultural and climatic aspects and, most importantly, meeting the education criteria of the school they are applying to. While they need to be realistic that not everything will be a perfect match every time, prioritizing the requirements will be helpful. ​


What do you love about Chicago?

Everything! It i​​s a dream city for someone who is aiming to study and experience the work culture. It's easy to commute within the city, and people out here are warm and welcoming. Everyone has a place in this city. Being one of the largest cities in the US, it offers various work opportunities in the city. Students are going to love the city and especially the two campuses of DePaul University. 


If an international student is curious but unsure about attending college in a city as large as Chicago, what would you tell them?

 By all means I would encourage the students to gather more information and speak with us to understand the offerings of the university. Be more open while communicating with the international team at DePaul University, which will help to receive accurate and helpful information. It will help students to bust the myths they may have or feel confident about their choices. ​
