A current student experience @ the Josef Korbel School

I recently came across the following article about a current student’s experience here at the Josef Korbel School and wanted to share it with you. No – we did not pay this student :). For additional current student experiences, check out our grad student blogs. And no, they aren’t paid either.

The state of Colorado has earned a national reputation as a one-of-a-kind, liberal thinkers’ environmental oasis. Not only is it home to some of the most gorgeous and inspiring American geographical landscapes, Colorado’s capital city of Denver is home to the University of Colorado at Denver, Metropolitan State College of Denver, Johnson & Wales University, Regis University, Remington College, and University of Denver. Colorado is also ranked #3 in the United States for greatest number of bright, sunny days enjoyed by its students per calendar year (behind only the cities of San Diego, California and Miami, Florida)! That being said, studying in Colorado has drawn students even from these states, as well as the rest of the world!

Michael was one such prospective student. A native to the sunshine state of Florida, Michael made the decision to pursue graduate studies at the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies. Michael’s decision to move to Colorado was based largely on his academic interests, which include U.S. foreign policy and international affairs. As Michael explains, “I wanted to expose myself to non-traditional perspectives on issues such as U.S. foreign policy and global trade, and with so many diverse and internationally recognized centers throughout the country I felt it was worthwhile to travel somewhere new and exciting for my graduate education.”
