    1. You have asked unique questions, like about the website and regarding Honor Program as not much people have awareness about this program. Good job!

      Delete
    2. I think your questions are good! If I know before doing my interview, I maybe use your questions! haha^^ Good job!

      Delete
    3. Chiaki, I agree with Haris and Daniel, you did ask good questions! It is interesting that she said she wouldn't join the Honors Program because it would mean she would have to take more classes. What are you opinions? Do you think Graduating with Honors would be beneficial to you as you apply for jobs or graduate programs?

      Delete
    4. I have never thought about horticulture before. I think this student is sure about her/his future career. I want to be like him/her.

  7. By HARIS MEMON.

    The name of the student whom I interviewed is Brittany Buro and she is doing double major so she is studying in CBE and CAS both. She has been a very bright student so far as she has made the Dean's List in all of her previous five semesters. Moreover, she added that her cumulative GPA is 3.9 so far. She is definitely planning to seek a master's degree in business studies from a graduate school but she has not decided for any specific one at the moment. I asked her if she has applied for any scholarships and she replied that she had applied once but unfortunately she didn't get it. Then I questioned about her involvement in the university activities and she answered that she chose to be one of the RAs of McMillan Hall because she wants to help the students and it is also helping her in learning some professionalism. Lastly, on inquiring about her favorite professor in this university, she told me that she liked Miss Rebecca Raham as Brittany had plenty of classes with this teacher and she was really positive, helping Brittany in making some decisions related to the studies.

    3. Haris, this is really informative. You reported the information about the colleges correctly. She is studying in CBE - the College of Business and Economics and CAS - the College of Arts and Sciences. She must be studying German if her professor is Miss Rebecca Haham.

      Brittany sounds like a successful, positive student. Thanks for sharing!
