Khrystian Pereira ’16, B.A. in International Political Economy & Diplomacy, B.A. in Religion & Politics



UB has given me the chance to travel to various parts of the world that I thought I never would. I have been able to represent the University of Bridgeport in Model United Nations conferences in major world capitals. I have been able to study abroad both in the Middle East and in East Asia and I’ve also traveled throughout the country as part of the UB Alternative Spring Break team to help various communities.

Despite being a commuter, I am always at UB—I love it here because there is never a dull moment. Because UB is a mixture of people from all over the world and all socio-cultural backgrounds, there is always an opportunity to learn about new cultures without ever having to leave campus.
