Ana Gonzalez
Class of 2022, Biology (Pre-Physical Therapy)

“I chose Caldwell University because it granted me the opportunity to pursue my dream of studying biology while engaging in the sport I love, basketball. Moreover, having grown up influenced by the Catholic tradition, I very much appreciated the fact that Caldwell is a Catholic institution. My favorite moment at Caldwell thus far was the first time I stepped on campus! I instantly recognized just how welcoming and helpful the faculty and student body are. Since then, I have established friendships and bonds which have truly changed my life. One of the things I enjoy the most about Caldwell is the presence of diversity on campus. The international students come from all over the world. I learn so much about different cultures, values, and ways of thinking through the presence of so many ethnic groups.”

One of my best memories at Caldwell was when I was chosen to attend the World Youth Forum in Egypt. Friendliness, knowing almost everyone, playing indoor soccer and playing with my band “clueless” are some of the things I enjoy the most about this place.”

Huong Nguyen
Class of 2020, Communications & Media Studies

“My favorite moment at Caldwell has been the Caldwell Research and Creative Art Day, where I presented my digital art project and won the first prize in the category of Creative Art. As a business student, I had minimum contact with other fields such as art, drawing or research. However, Caldwell encouraged me to think outside of the box and to think beyond the classroom. My friends and my professors gave me the strength to step out of my comfort zone and bravely experience new fields that I hadn’t tried before. …and I won!  At Caldwell University, I found that a professor is not only a professor but also a friend who gives me advice and actually cares about my future.”
