Being an international student at TWU Houston site was a great experience for me. I was surrounded by a very supportive team, including Dr. Moore, Dr. Maziarz, the Nutrition Department and especially Ms. Deb. They have worked with me to create opportunities to learn and apply what I have learned through CPT and OPT programs. I am forever grateful for the time that I had here at TWU Houston.
