Living an Unforgettable Experience

Melis's Suffolk Story

“Suffolk has always offered the best opportunities to find the best version of myself.”

Melis's Suffolk Story

Although my Suffolk journey was not long, the past year and a half have provided me with an unforgettable experience. 

I still remember my first day, my first class. Because I started my master’s program in the middle of the pandemic, everything was more difficult than usual—including being able to build a relationship with my classmates and professors, and adapting quickly to the new environment and classes. I began all of this knowing that it would be a good challenge for me and my life. Suffolk has always supported me in this way and provided more opportunities than I could have imagined on the path I had dreamed about for years.

I certainly could not have gotten the field experience and networking opportunities that I gained through my Suffolk master’s program anywhere else. Going to a school in the heart of Boston is another part of that luck. Suffolk has always offered the best opportunities to find the best version of myself and to succeed in my fields of studies. Although this journey has come to an end, the memories and experiences I have gained will live with me in every aspect of my life.

I will be forever grateful to Suffolk for being supportive and for providing students with the opportunity to discover their passions and become leaders who can change the world!
