I applied to SUMAS because of its specific focus on Sustainability. I've found very professional and passionate professors, who have always been helpful and friendly. At SUMAS, we have a very multicultural environment, which is positive from both in terms of making new friends from many countries and understanding the various sustainable approaches from around the world.
