My two-year experience at Pierce was truly rewarding.  In the uniquely supportive environment of Pierce campus, the college gave me countless opportunities to be a leader and to accomplish my goals.  I, as an international student, won the Student Government election and took a leadership position in this student-run organization where I worked closely with other student leaders and many college executives at the College.  I also became the founding president of the Golf Club.  My other activities on campus included Multicultural Leadership Institute, Student Leader Training, Diversity Training, volunteer works and community services, etc. In addition to these interesting activities, Pierce offered a strong academic curriculum.  Most courses I took at Pierce were transferable to prestigious four-year universities in the U.S.  I excelled in all my classes and earned several awards and honors at the college. What I loved the most was the people at Pierce.  Pierce instructors were knowledgeable, informative, and always available to help students.  The academic advisors at the international office were extremely positive, supportive, and clearly loved what they do.  My classmates also came from diverse backgrounds and always made classes more interesting and enjoyable. During my last year at Pierce, I was accepted to all of the four-year universities that I applied to, including my dream business school: the Stern School of Business at New York University.  The knowledge I acquired at Piece College has been helping me excel in all of my courses at NYU.  I have also taken leadership positions in top business clubs at NYU.  I am graduating with top honors from NYU next month, and I have received several employment offers from prestigious companies on Wall Street.  From my own experience, it has become clear that with a Pierce College education, I can get from where I am to where I want to be.
