    One of my relatives lives there in Canada. They were inviting me for so long but due to my schooling, I don't have time to go to them. But after completing high school I decided to pursue my bachelor's from Canada and spend time with them. Therefore I applied to this university through their official website by paying an application fee of $150.

    Course Curriculum :

    Through the program, we gain expertise in their area, as well as character development, as we learn to navigate between technology and society from a distinctly Christian worldview. We from the computing science program stand out as confident professionals and choose from a variety of career paths.

    I had applied to this university as it was recommended to me by my high school teacher. She knew that I wanted to pursue studies in Business Administration so she had suggested that I apply here. I had applied online, submitted my high school documents and paid a non refundable application fee of around $150.

    Course Curriculum :

    The program was really excellent and my major was in International Business. Some of the subjects I had learnt, included - International Marketing and Leadership in the Global Context.

    I like the location and beliefs of the school. I wanted to go to this university because I wanted to have a sense of community and a group of people around me who have similar beliefs to mine. I wanted to go out of state as well.

    Course Curriculum :

    I enjoy the courses that I am taking for my English major in the school of humanities, but I think there should be more options when it comes to the core curriculum and classes that we are required to take.
