Student Ambassador at Earlham College
Class of 2021
Hometown: Bethlehem, Palestine, State of
Major: International Relations & Affairs
I have two EPIC advantages because I am an Honors student. I was planning on using one of them this summer to do an internship back home in Lebanon. However, due to the outbreak of the current global pandemic, I won't be able to use my EPIC advantage. Yet, so far, I've had an enjoyable experience with the EPIC centers. Many of you might be wondering what EPIC is, or you might have looked it up, and you're still confused, I would be more than happy to help you understand what it is.
I love most of the classes, and I can go forever about how amazing my classes and professors are. I won't name my favorite professors or classes, but I'm happy to talk more about this in one-on-one settings.
As an international student, I was looking for diverse and inclusive colleges, and Earlham is a great example. Among the six colleges I got accepted to in the US, Earlham provided me with the most significant financial aid package. Two weeks before my flight to the US, I learned that I was also chosen to participate in Earlham's newly constructed Honors program. Also, I had contacts from my home country who also went to Earlham, and they loved their experience, which encouraged me to choose Earlham.
