Why you chose HPU: “I chose HPU because of the tangible atmosphere. You feel it the first time you step foot on campus. It is not just a university, it is a home. Ever since I visited the campus on a tour in 2018, I knew that this would be my home. I felt like HPU would be the perfect place for me to study, but also build a social life.”
What you’re looking forward to at HPU: “I am looking forward to the extraordinary education I will receive, not only in biology, but also in the life skills I need to be successful after graduation. The faculty and staff are amazing, and that goes without even mentioning the fact that Dr. Qubein takes time to teach students himself in the President’s Seminar on Life Skills. He is a role model, and I cannot wait to learn from him, my professors and my peers this fall!”
