Hello, my name is Natasha.

I chose UPJ because the enrollment process was easy.  The international recruitment director, Sui Chen was in constant contact with me while I was applying from Australia and he was helpful in providing accurate information about the campus and the program. He even helped me with financial costs and went as far as calling my mother to ensure her this is the best option for me and is willing to do everything in his capability to help me get to UPJ.

The thing I love about UPJ is the small class sizes and the people. Everyone is friendly, happy and helpful. When I first arrived I was nervous because I was so different, but the student of UPJ welcomed me with a warm hug and an encouraging pat on the back.

You will fall in love with the campus because during the fall the colors are spectacular and during the winter the snow is magical. A rural campus really is the best environment to live and study in.

If you have any further concerns about why UPJ is the best option for you, please do not hesitate to contact me. Remember, I was in the exact same position you are in and I’m happy to answer any questions you may have.
