Green River College transfer student inspired by her Nigerian culture
ASU transfer student Francie Igboabuchi began her path to higher education at Green River College after learning about their 2+2 tertiary education system. As a Nigerian, this was very different from her educational experiences at the time. Inspired to pursue higher education by her parents, she recalls how education is considered to be one of the most invaluable tools that parents equip their children with.
“Growing up in a Nigerian household, my parents made certain that we received a great education," Igboabuchi said. "I grew up learning that schooling is different from education and that school teaches you to take responsibility for your own education, and learning that piece made me fall in love with academia. I feel that these four years of my undergraduate, and the many others that came before it, have prepared me not only to face the real world, but to give back to the world in a way that makes an impact, not only in the field of academia, but in other ways that we relate to each other.”
With an interest in science, and biology in particular, from a young age, she decided to pursue her BS degree in biological studies (biomedical sciences) in The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Read more about Francie’s inspiring journey to ASU.

The degree programs feature hands-on courses taught by Thunderbird’s graduate level-faculty, so "Underbirds" are provided an interactive, discussion-based classroom experience that deepens their understanding of global business and instills Thunderbird’s global mindset.
Thunderbird undergraduate degree programs prepare students to take on leadership roles in multinational corporations, government agencies, public sector and nongovernmental organizations in the U.S. and around the world.
