Rashif had a talk with the Students

Rashif talked about - Clark Univ, Admission Process, Application Preparations, Real-campus Experience, Food, Cooking, Departments (taking different combinations Majors and Minors), the number of internationals in the campus and the way it adds to diversity.

A very important issue was the need for taking those subjects, courses that one should take and NOT just what one imagines. The Funding Sources of the Universities in a place like Clarke University, outside funding resources etc. Rashif made a strong case in favour of defending his cultural identity in an environment where people tend to be less informed about 'different' national and ethnic background.
