General inquiries and community college transfer students


Hometown: Dieren, The Netherlands

What are you involved in?
Currently, I am only working as an admissions intern, however, once I get more used to the university life, I hope to get involve with more clubs.

What do you like most about PLU?
I like the small class sizes. I have usually no more that 25 students in my classroom. All my classes are taught by my professors and not by teachers assistants. The professors are really approachable and willing to help.

What’s one piece of advice you would give to incoming students?
Get very well prepared, as a transfer student, I found the level of education a lot harder than at my old college. However, if you are taking steps to understand the matter, and ask the teachers, they are really willing to help.
