STUDENT PROFILE - IAGO BOJCZUK, Class of 2018
Hometown: Atibaia, São Paulo, Brazil
Iago Bojczuk of Brazil values diversity. He lives it. And it’s one of the things he likes best about the University of Oregon.
"I can get to know people from all over the world. I have friends from Mongolia, from Tibet, from different African countries - Uganda, Ethiopia. This kind of diversity I wouldn’t find easily in Brazil."
A journalism major fascinated with history, Iago wants to explore the links between globalization, education, and media. The honors college curriculum is pushing him. It’s rigorous. And he loves that.
"The classes are way more challenging than general university classes. In the beginning it was kind of scary. After a while you get comfortable with the professors, who are really helpful. They really want to push you forward."
