Why I Chose Northwest

I noticed that Northwest is very diverse, and many international students come here to study. Diversity fosters creativity, gives new perspectives, and provides opportunities to learn things other than academics. Additionally, I learned about their flexible and intriguing student exchange and study abroad programs. Another reason I'm here today is that I'm a computer science student and I've heard great things about the computer science and digital media courses offered here. My brother also attended this school and graduated with the same major seven years ago, so I have a lot of knowledge about Northwest and the faculty and the courses offered here.

As a Career Ambassador, I'm most excited to help students with...

I'm eager to assist students with their resumes and cover letters as a career ambassador. The most enjoyable aspect is that I was once a student who needed resume assistance and didn't know where to begin. Career services assisted me, and because I've been there, I completely understand their needs and concerns regarding creating a good resume and searching for jobs and internships out there. I now want to assist students as a part of career services, where students like me receive assistance. Aside from that, I'm genuinely enthusiastic to meet with new people, organize career events for students, and help them network with recruiters and find jobs.

My favorite part about being a Bearcat is...

My favorite part of being a bearcat is being able to participate in many campus organizations, work on campus, and still comfortably concentrate on my academic work. The faculty is also very flexible in terms of encouraging students, and I truly appreciate that they do so.
