I made the choice of coming to Park University because it is an international campus with so many different cultures. This is given me many new experiences and opportunities that I would not have back home. I also decided to come to Park because of the exceptional volleyball program and I am proud to be a part of it. I would be happy to help you if you have any questions.

I came to Park University in January 2017. I chose Park University because of its affordable fee structure and diverse educational programs that are offered here. The international exposure that I knew I would receive at Park University was also one of the main reasons for my decision. Contacting an International Student Ambassador can help you get involved with various extra-curricular activities and orientation opportunities.

Hi, my name is Stefanie and I became a Park Pirate in 2016. Park refers to itself as “One Family” and that is really what it is. What I like the most is the great diversity and friendliness on campus – I felt welcome ever since I first came here. As an international student you will be exposed to an entirely different culture which can be overwhelming sometimes. I am happy to share my experiences and help fellow international students from Europe and anywhere else with questions you may have and of course with integration and connection on campus.

Being far away from home can sometimes feel intimidating, the history and tradition of USA can be overwhelming too, but Park University gave me a home away from home.  Park provides a caring and supportive atmosphere focused on international students through a variety of academic and Student Life resources. I am happy to be a Park Pirate and blessed to be one of the international student ambassadors, which is fulfilling work, as I will not only get to meet with students from around the world but also help guide them to make the most of their university experience here at Park University.

I am very proud to be part of the Park University family. It is a fantastic university, with a beautiful campus and great facilities. One of the unique selling points for me is that Park University has a very good international student base. This is nice because it allows students of different origins to come together while studying for their degree, and for some to represent the university in a sport. Adjusting to a new country can be difficult, but it has been made much easier by coming here. If anyone has any questions or queries, I am very open and willing to answer those to the best of my ability.
