Student Ambassador at Earlham College
Class of 2022
Hometown: Mont-Liban, Lebanon
Major: International Relations & Affairs
As an international student, I was looking for diverse and inclusive colleges, and Earlham is a great example. Among the six colleges I got accepted to in the US, Earlham provided me with the most significant financial aid package. Two weeks before my flight to the US, I learned that I was also chosen to participate in Earlham's newly constructed Honors program. Also, I had contacts from my home country who also went to Earlham, and they loved their experience, which encouraged me to choose Earlham.
I have two EPIC advantages because I am an Honors student. I was planning on using one of them this summer to do an internship back home in Lebanon. However, due to the outbreak of the current global pandemic, I won't be able to use my EPIC advantage. Yet, so far, I've had an enjoyable experience with the EPIC centers. Many of you might be wondering what EPIC is, or you might have looked it up, and you're still confused, I would be more than happy to help you understand what it is.
Students calling faculty, staff, and the president by their first names only is the quirkiest thing I've seen at Earlham. It never ceases to amaze me how much Earlham follows its Quaker values, which I've come to appreciate and abide by. Earlham Principles and Practices are very noble and interesting.
I love most of the classes, and I can go forever about how amazing my classes and professors are. I won't name my favorite professors or classes, but I'm happy to talk more about this in one-on-one settings.
