President James Troha of Juniata College Huntingdon Pennsylvania was recently warmly welcomed at Lyceum International Panadura. This is the first ever recorded visit by a Juniata representative in its 140 year history to the Island. His visit was initiated by Scholarships for USA Ltd. (SUSA).

Founded in 1876 Juniata is a perfect example of top notch exclusive private liberal arts and sciences schools in US. With only 1,632 students it boasts of 13:1 student-faculty ratio with the average class size being only 19 students. With one-on-one attention from professors Juniata is nationally recognised by US News & World Report, Colleges That Change Lives, Forbes.com, Kiplinger’s, The Fiske Guide to Colleges, Barron’s Best Buys in Education and the Princeton Review. In 2012 Juniata became one of only five colleges honoured nationwide with the Senator Paul Simon Award for Comprehensive Campus Internationalisation.

SUSA since ‘01 has been engaged in discovering the most affordable US colleges and universities for Lankan academic stars and has placed over 300 students up to date across USA with amazing scholarships. Being the only Lankan recruiter working exclusively with US schools SUSA has been promoting Sri Lanka to scores of such schools and convincing them of the importance of preparing Sri Lankan youth to become global professionals. Many such students across the island have done amazingly well with US liberal arts and sciences education and financial packages earning PhDs or being employed at Fortune 500s or at the Wall Street.

Open letter to M.A. Sumanthiran, MP

Thursday, 17 January 2019

Happy Pongal, Mr Sumanthiran! You and I are from two very different generations. In fact you belong to my uncle’s generation (sadly I don’t get along very well with my uncle). You are a child of the ’70s. I’m a child of the 90s. In a more tex

A lie is also a truth

Wednesday, 16 January 2019

Gotabaya Rajapaksa is a determined contender for the presidency. His trenchant lecture to activists of the Viyathmaga forum demonstrated the man’s spiritedness and impulse to act. He is a driven man. What drives him?
