Hello! My name is Muneer,
I chose University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown because they had a really simple application process. The faculty here are very friendly and considerate. In fact, the director of international recruitment Mr. Chen contacted me and helped me complete my enrollment to UPJ during the Christmas break!
Moreover, the student-to-faculty ratio in Johnstown is very low. I like that very much about this school because professors have more time to help me when I face challenges in my classes.
Due to my cultural religion, a professor in the university who shares my belief helped introduce me to the local Muslim community, which enables me to continue to practice my religion in a friendly environment.
I Enjoy the student activities and clubs on campus because every individual try to help you get involved. I could easily make friends here that with people share similar interests that I do.
Please contact me if you had any question regarding student life in Pitt-Johnstown.
