“I am proud to call myself a Malaysian. Although we can’t go home to celebrate Merdeka (Independence Day), we gather the Malaysians here at Mines to go for a ‘Merdeka Hike’ every year. Other than the hike being a break from school, it’s always the time of the year where we remind ourselves to do our best for the country no matter where we were.”

“This is my second visit to Mines. My first visit was in 2015 as an exchange student, and I have just started my master’s degree here. The infrastructure and the professors here made me come back again to pursue my higher studies. I really wanted to have the quality of life that I had when I was an exchange student in Golden with these awesome mountains, Clear Creek and some ice-skating too. I loved this place and really wanted to come back.”

“Life at Mines has been enriching, both professionally and personally. Getting to interact with professors, industrial mentors and sponsors has given me invaluable exposure that will surely be useful for my career forward.”
