Liz Nino, Director of International Recruitment and Assistant Director of Admissions of Augustana College in Rock Island Illinois US, recently created history by becoming the first-ever official of Augustana to visit Sri Lanka.
Augustana College was another school introduced to Sri Lanka by SUSA (www.scholarshipsforusa.com) in 2012 as per its mission of making US education increasingly affordable for Lankan youth.
Augustana College - a selective, private liberal arts and sciences college founded in 1860 with an undergraduate student body of 2,500 students offering nearly 90 majors, was recently rated among the 25 most beautiful campuses in the US. Each student placed by SUSA was very happy with the quality of education, peaceful environment, Midwestern hospitality and affordability and, according to Liz, the faculty of Augustana was very impressed with the academic brilliance and serious commitment of Lankan students. Liz was welcomed by a few parents, Priyanthi and Padmasena Dissanayake, of SUSA.
