MY EXPERIENCE WITH AIU
Note of acknowledgements by William Nzitubundi Sendihe, Master of Education, with Applied Linguistics, AIU
I can’t help acknowledging the constructive experience that I have had with AIU. I sincerely and wholeheartedly wish to express my gratitude to all AIU Staff who were always ready and available to support me and encourage my academic progress. The academic department never ceased to write to me in order to also encourage me in my progress, even where I thought I would not succeed, they always encouraged me. I am so excited to get my Master’s Degree, which I never thought I would get for many reasons, including poverty, but I have now made it, and I owe it to AIU and all their staff, especially for the financial support they gave me to help me achieve my dream.
I was sometimes given very difficult assignments and could not know how and where to start, but thanks to the encouragements and facilitation from my kind and lovely Tutor Cyndy Dominguez, and my academic Advisors Linda Collazo, Nam Nguyen, Ofelia Hernandez, Osvaldo Vasquez, Dr. Angel Ranal, and others, I was able to do them successfully.
I started in very difficult conditions, thinking that I would not finish the program, but now I thank God who has enabled me to come to successful completion and get the noble Master’s Degree from such a unique University in the world. Through this unique online program, I have learned to work intensively; tooth and nail, in order to achieve my ambition. It really requires seriousness, hard work and self determination to get through AIU’s online program successfully, and this is sanctioned by the noble degree which is much higher than the degrees other people get from traditional universities. Thanks to this program, I have eliminated many of my weaknesses by working hard. I have personally found out that my experience with AIU is far different from the one I would get from any traditional university.
AIU is unique and extra-ordinary. The freedom within the framework that AIU students have, doing their own research through AIU’s online library and their own documents regardless of where they are, the humbleness and cooperation that characterize AIU staff vis-à-vis their students, … all this has tremendously contributed to my academic and professional growth.
I will remain obliged to AIU in all my professional activities.
Long live Atlantic International University,
Long live the School of Social and Human Studies,
Long live the field of Applied Linguistics!!!
May God bless AIU.
