Xiaozhu Yang (Kenzie), class of 2023

I’m Kenzie Yang from China and I attended Encounter ND in both Beijing and Mumbai. The students and alumni are so nice and eager to tell us about their own experience at ND. The concerns about college life all vanished and were replaced by excitement after attending the event. The sense of community and the warmth of the welcoming and friendly people make ND different from other universities. I think all the incoming students are so ready to start the wonderful life at ND after the event!
