What attracted you to Jacobs out of all the other possibilities you were considering?

First of all, location. Europe had always been an attractive yet mysterious place to me. I was definitely intrigued by the idea of studying and spending a few years in Germany, and the school facilities were really modern and much better than most colleges out there.
Second, it was the fact that it’s an international university, I was drawn to the idea of meeting different people and being embraced in a multi-cultural atmosphere (truth is it was even better than I had ever imagined!).
Last but not least, it was the financial support Jacobs offered. It showed that it’s a place that actually welcomed and valued talents despite their financial situation.

What did Jacobs do for you that you were not expecting?

I think Jacobs fundamentally changed me in a way by giving me this international experience. Never in my life had I ever imagined that I would have met such a diverse group of really cool people and developed life-long friendships with them! The fact that we were able to connect and understand each other despite differences in our cultural backgrounds was simply amazing.
Jacobs is a place of wonder. People live in harmony here despite conflicts between their countries or religions. It was not only global mindset that I acquired here; more importantly, it was this hope that one day, world peace can be realized.

As Jacobs has adopted changes in curricula over the years, some of the study programs the alumni have been in might no longer be offered. However, the elements of interdisciplinarity, woven in with diverse perspectives to foster a holistic education, is and will always be the principle that governs all of the study programs Jacobs offers. Alumni featured on this website may have studied different subjects, but their appreciation for Jacobs, their journey at Jacobs, and their journey beyond Jacobs stays the same.
