What made you choose Bethune-Cookman University to obtain a collegiate education?
One of my friends from Nepal, who is currently a junior at B-CU, recommended me to this university. After I applied here, I received a reasonable amount of scholarships, therefore, I decided to attend B-CU.
Why the Computer Science major?
I’m studying computer science
When you first arrived to campus, what was it like?
It was an amazing feeling. It was my first time out of my country… I got to see new places, meet new people and learn new cultures. Therefore, I’m happy about it.
If someone from your home asked for your advice because they want to attend B-CU, what would you tell them?
I would recommend to attend B-CU. In fact, I have recommended one of my friends to attend B-CU for fall of 2019, and if everything goes well, we will have the eleventh Nepali at B-CU shortly.
