Cathy is a senior Accounting major from China. She is currently the Treasurer of the iClub at Felician University. Cathy chose Felician University because of the small classes and the ability to have professors and classmates know your name. “At Felician University, we learn and we have fun,” says Cathy. “I love the way we learn and how our knowledge can be practiced in real life.” Cathy also mentions that she loves the amazing programs that are offered by the Office of International Programs. “We shared culture by holding China and Korea nights; we screamed on the rollercoaster at Six Flags and were touched by Broadway shows.” Isn’t it amazing that you can do all of these things with someone who shares a different worldview? Cathy thinks so.
