Ferraz on Nebraska
"It's hard to choose a university, because it's going to be my home for the next four years. When I had the chance to visit Nebraska I knew it was the one. Not only because it has amazing academics, but there also are amazing people that were so welcoming to me. It made me feel safe since I am going to be far away from my home and country."
