I did not find Hastings College; Hastings College found me. Through online advertisements and hearing about it from a few friends, I got interested in it. Some of the salient features of the college are that it offers no-cost study abroad studies, no charges for study material, and I also got iPad Pro for studying the digital notes.
My course is a lot more than spending time in the classroom. There are some sessions also out in the community, testing theories that we learn in class and the research that I conduct with the outstanding faculty. Through these experiences, I am making connections and I may earn a quality internship.
