Name: Gurwinder Kaur
Course of Study: Nursing
Why did you choose Marquette?
I chose Marquette because of the amazing nursing program they have, the small student-teacher ratio, and because of the good things I’ve heard about the school in general.
How has financial aid impacted your college experience?
Financial aid has made my college experience much easier because without it, I would have been at a different school with fewer opportunities than I have gained here studying at Marquette. Instead of constantly worrying about money and paying for tuition, I can focus on my studies and activities which have enhanced my college experience.
Did receiving financial aid impact your decision to attend Marquette?
Yes it did, if I did not receive all the financial aid I have now, there would be absolutely no way I could have attended Marquette.
What will a college degree mean to you?
A college degree to me means being able to fulfill my dream to be in the healthcare field helping people and a way to support not only myself but also my parents and family.
Have you learned something during college you didn’t expect?
Yes I have. I’ve learned that college takes a lot of hard work and dedication, something I was not completely prepared for when I started.
What are your plans after graduation?
After I graduate and become a nurse, I plan to get a job at a hospital or clinic somewhere in the community and then further my education, so I can become a nurse anesthetist.
