Home Country: Lagos, Nigeria
Major: MS in Information Systems Management
Have you participated in any internships? How have they prepared you for your field of study?
I do have plans to participate in an internship program towards the very end of my study here. I feel RMU is preparing me for my field of study.
What do you like about RMU?
To be super honest, everything. The reason why I am doing well at the moment is because everything seems to fit around me well enough.
Why did you choose RMU?
I wanted to study in an environment that was completely different from back home in Nigeria. I looked at a lot of places and I saw many good options but they all seemed to remind me of my home country, I wanted a different experience. I ended up on the RMU website, I don't remember how and I had to trust all that was said on the site. When I did show up to the school, and the classes started, that's what really blew me away.
What has been your favorite event/activity on campus?
I have been here for about 7 months now and I have seen a lot of them, the school really goes through a lot to make these activities happen for international or domestic students it's very hard to pick one.
