dc.description A Newspaper Article about USIU-Africa by a Daily Nation journalist, posted on the 21st of April 2016 en_US
dc.description.abstract It is strange that the Kenyan university with the highest percentage of foreign students has the most relaxed and grown-up atmosphere towards security. United States International University is better than you think for a lot less than you would expect. At a time when middle class families are watching every cent, it offers very good value for money. Part of the savings were achieved through technology, according to my guide. Online portals to organise student university life save the need for reference desks. Putting resources in the cloud requires less people in meat space. The Administration building in USIU is the least imposing I have ever come across. It is an old house retrofitted as an office. It has few pretensions and looks like a small NGO’s office in an estate in Westlands. It is always a good sign when the administration buildings are not the centrepiece of a university. And no, the doors are not manned by officious guards ready to wand you and demand to see identification -students freely walk in or out. It was strange that the Kenyan university with the highest percentage of foreign students has the most relaxed atmosphere and grown-up attitude towards security. en_US
