More than 2,000 international students attend Syracuse University.

Here’s what some of them have to say:



Misyrlena Egkolfopoulou
Broadcast Journalism in the Newhouse School
Class of 2013

“I chose SU because I wanted to experience the typical American college experience! I definitely got it here. The campus brings everyone together in one place. The journalism school is also one of the best in the world! I love the campus; I love my classes and my professors. I love the healthy balance of school life and social life that I live here. Every day is different, I never get bored!”



Layan Khayat
Saudi Arabia
Undecided major
Class of 2015

“I wanted to explore! As an international student coming to America, I wanted to go somewhere different, different than the typical cities such as New York City or Boston. When I first visited SU, I fell in love with the campus. It was exactly what I wanted. I love the fact that there are different schools and colleges within the University. Seeking help is easy. The writing center will welcome you with any questions; also the tutoring center is a great place if you have difficulties in any course.”



Abdulrazzak Alanjari

Class of 2015

“The diverse student body as well as the experience that I would gain being in one of the top architecture schools in the nation – that’s why I chose Syracuse. The school spirit is also amazing and really one of a kind to find in a medium-sized school. I also like how involved the student body is with the city of Syracuse.”



Athirah Amani Mohd Nasir
International Relations in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs/College of Arts and Sciences
Class of 2014

“SU is one of the best universities for the International Relations major. Maxwell School is consistently ranked as a leading graduate school for public affairs, too. I have enjoyed the wide selection of clubs, student associations and honor societies, and the overall abundance of fun activities held for the students!”
