Meet Our International Students

“Since coming to Belhaven, I've experienced a world of new opportunities including new friendships and cultural experiences. The biggest shock I experienced was the close relationship I had with my professors who knew my name and wanted to develop a relationship with me. I also really enjoyed the Christian perspective in the course work.”

“Compared to large public universities, Belhaven offers a peaceful environment, small classes, Christian teachings in the curriculum and caring professors. My college experience at Belhaven has given me knowledge and wisdom I can use in my career.”
