Question (Q): How did you decide to study in America?

Daniel (D): International degree as well as the stamp of coming to the United States and having an American degree is a very big label to have anywhere in the world. That is why I chose to come here.

Q: Why did you choose to study at Roosevelt?

D: I chose Roosevelt University because of its rich legacy as well as the fact that it was in Chicago. There is always something exciting happening on campus or something happening within a close proximity in Chicago.

Q: What was the most striking thing when you first arrived to Chicago?

D: I came straight to Roosevelt from the airport, and I really needed a lot of assistance. Everybody was extremely friendly and helpful. There is a sense of family at Roosevelt and everyone seems very familiar. You would find it hard not to make friends.

Q: What was your experience like while studying and living in Chicago?

D: I lived in Wabash Building, and it was truly an amazing experience. I made new friends there, and the view is breathtaking!

Q: What do you like the most about Roosevelt University?

D: It is a very teacher-driven school. By sitting in one classroom with a lot of people from different countries, you learn a lot more. It is not just about the courses and the syllabus, it is also about experiencing these different nationalities and people. It really helps you learn and gives you a lot of exposure.

Q: How are you feeling now as a graduate student?

D: My parents are very proud that I graduated from Roosevelt. I studied in the MBA program with a major in Management and graduated with a 3.55 GPA. It feels good to graduate and be done with my degree, but it is also sad that I will no longer be a part of Roosevelt as a student anymore.
