Is Part Of


In this episode, you’ll meet Farmata, Melody, PJ, and Venerable Hyemin. Farmata is from the western African country of Mauritania and came to UWest in search of sunshine and the opportunity for scholarships UWest offers international students. Melody and PJ are a punk rock duo known as the Atomic Attractions, who fell in love with the ‘good-weird’ community of UWest right away. Venerable Hyemin is a Buddhist monk born and raised in Normal, Illinois, who found a home at UWest where he can both study and practice his religion. Find out how UWest builds a uniquely diverse community with students from almost 44 countries and 30 states.
