Suffolk University: You Are In

00:08 What's the typical Suffolk student like? Sorry, trick question.

00:14 There is no typical Suffolk student. Your Suffolk education

00:17 will follow the paths you choose. Paths that span the world to

00:21 experiences you can't find anywhere else and maybe never

00:24 imagined. Paths that bring you face to face with new people, new

00:28 ideas and new ways of learning.

00:32 Maybe you'll work as a volunteer helping refugees in Lebanon like

00:36 Karine did, putting your passions to work in ways that make a

00:40 real difference in the lives of real people. Or maybe you'll start

00:44 a real estate Investment club and become a licensed realtor in

00:47 your freshman year, like Christian did, finding professional

00:50 opportunities for jump start on your career throughout our

00:53 downtown Boston campus. Maybe you'll broadcast live all over

00:57 New England, like Hannah did, learning from hands-on experiences

01:01 and applying new skills and. World beyond campus—before you

01:05 even graduate. Maybe you'll come to Boston from a small island

01:08 nation, throwing yourself into building a more inclusive campus

01:12 and speaking at your own commencement, like Malik did, all with

01:16 the support of a diverse community that hears all voices and

01:19 enables all students to achieve the goals that are important to

01:22 them. And maybe you'll study abroad in Italy, visit Madrid with

01:27 our Global Gateway Program, like Sophia did, broadening your

01:30  perspectives and deepening your compassion by forging

01:33 connections with people from all over the world. The time you

01:37 spend at Suffolk will change you. It will make you flexible,

01:41 adaptable, and nimble enough to excel in a world that's

01:44 changing, too. This is not a typical college experience.

01:49 It’s not meant to be.

01:56 This is Suffolk University, and you are in.
