Wahida finished her graduation in Bangladesh, and she wanted to pursue her Master’s in the US as the country has one of the best education systems.

While searching for colleges, Wahida came across the interviews done by HappySchools with students and faculties of UTPB, which helped make the decision and picked UTPB for her graduate school.

She also works on the campus which gives her additional income to manage her expense. Wahida also gave us brief information about the course and assignments she has done so far.

As an international student, the shopping experience at a new place can be overwhelming, and it is always good to have someone to guide you as to where you can find groceries or other necessary items.
