Moses Mallam, a fourth year business student originally from Kaduna State, Nigeria, has fallen in love with CBU. A member of the Chinese New Year and Afro-Caribbean event committees, he says, “CBU is a wonderful university filled with generous students and staff.”
Moses praises the support of CBU’s professors and the learning environment they create. “The professors are always willing to help a student in need,” says Moses. He also believes that the small class sizes make it easy for students to build a relationship with their professors. Moses enjoys the BBA program because of how relevant the course material is and its international application. “The professors apply what we learn in class to current business problems.”
Last year, Moses volunteered as a Peer Success Coach. A Peer Success Coach is responsible for making the transition from high school to university easy for new students. They answer questions about campus life and inform incoming students about the local community. Moses enjoyed being a Peer Success Coach because he loves helping people in any way that he can. “As a Peer Success Coach, I get to make new friends every year and help them succeed in their studies,” says Moses. Moses is excited to continue his work as a Peer Success Coach this year and build new relationships as he meets new students.
Moses strongly encourages anyone considering university education to enroll at CBU. He says “At CBU, there are lots of opportunities to get involved in activities and make new friends. My CBU experience has been amazing. I have made friends from around the world and I have become part of the CBU community.” He believes that the key to being a successful student is to take advantage of the services that the University offers and develop effective time management skills.
Moses’s top three tips for students are:
1. Ask questions
2. Get involved
3. Smile 🙂
