Where are you from?
I'm from the northern Sweden. I study at Lulea University of Technology. 

What is your major?
Accounting and Controlling.

Why did you choose Clarkson?
I chose Clarkson because I had only heard good things about the school from former Swedish exchange students. Even though it's located in a small town I enjoy it a lot, especially the near distance to spectacular outdoor scenery and to Canadian cities.

What is one piece of advise you would give to someone who is or thinking of coming to CU?
Just go, you won't regret it! But maybe remember to bring a warmer jacket for the winter months.

What do you like most about living in Potsdam?
The people, without hesitation. Everyone I've met so far has been super nice and helpful. They really take care of us lost foreign people.
