My name is Pearl Ometan, I am an international student from Nigeria and I'm in my 2nd year student in the Master of Public Health (MPH) program in the School of Public Health.

I love to hang out with friends and share my experiences especially with new international students like me, who may be anxious about settling into a whole new environment.

While trying to find out more about the University of Minnesota before my arrival, I did not realize that there were also numerous international students like me doing the same thing. But I can say that it's been both fun and challenging to actually settle into the system and I hope many other students can say the same.

Hi Pearl,

About your post"Hello" first congratualtion about your 2nd year student in the PHM program.

Me too I was new from University of Minnesota but not come from Nigeria like you just from little town of Chicago.

I try to find most people differents country because I never been abroad... Anyway it was very good
experience to meet so much people go for it and good luck for the furture.


Hello Pearl,
Am glad to finally meet a Nigerian like me. Am a medical doctor and admitted into MPH in occupational/Environmental health. I will enroll fall of this year, I've heard scary tales about the cold there but am confident I'll survive through it. Any advise from you will be invaluable.
