Biomedical Sciences

Hello everyone! I’m an international student from Karachi, Pakistan; pursuing my undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences at CSU. It’s been a nerve-wracking time transitioning for me, but as things have started to settle for me, I’m loving it! Fort Collins is beautiful, to say the least. It’s so much quieter and slow compared to the metropolitan city I come from, so it has been quite a bit of newness for me.
¬†Joining ISSS has been the best decision I’ve taken up until now, it has helped me explore so much more and get to know about CSU and the opportunities it offers for international students¬†in a better way. It’s my little safe space, and I’m so glad to have it! I hope to have the time of my life as the event programming coordinator at ISSS.
