Since it’s a small school, I can connect with instructors on a personal level, meet people and actually hang out with them.
The opportunities that UW-Superior provides are a great draw for many international students looking to get a great college experience in America. Students like Grace Kim want to get involved and meet people from around the world.
“I wanted to study at a place where I could meet different people and learn more about different cultures,” said Grace. “My mother helped me search for colleges, and she found that UW-Superior had a recognized international program.”
Grace has met a variety of people, and has been able to effectively communicate and understand others. She believes this is because of UW-Superior’s campus size.
“Since it’s a small school, I can connect with instructors on a personal level, meet people and actually hang out with them,” she explained. “Also there are so many ways to experience multiple cultures – though organizations, the International Cooking Demonstration and Cultural Night.”
Being able to build relationships with instructors has helped Grace feel even more connected because she truly enjoys being a part of the Psychology program.
“After watching a video about psychology about how humans behave and think before college, I knew it was the career I wanted to pursue. I have a passion to help people going through emotional difficulties,” she said. “I really like my classes and instructors a lot. It’s interesting, and I get to be seen in class.”
Grace also values the experience she’s gained through the Psychology program.
“Through Academic Service-Learning, I’ve gotten to meet children and actually work with them,” she said. “I never thought I would actually get to counsel other people in college, and it’s a good experience.”
Grace is looking to become a music therapist or a school counselor after graduating UW-Superior. She also plans on attending graduate school in the Twin Cities or Chicago.
