I will cherish the experience at UNL… I can graduate without regrets and face the new chapter of my life.
In his final year at Nebraska, Yu continued his math- and science-intensive courses on Nebraska’s Innovation Campus. However, studying at UNL also allowed him to enroll in unique courses outside his major. Yu was thrilled to discover the “History of Rock Music” course, a class that quickly became his favorite memory as he learned more about his favorite style of music.
“Even though I had been a huge fan of rock and roll, before that, I never thought of taking the stories behind those marvelous songs and what rock and roll is,” said Yu.
Taught by Dr. Garrett Hope, Yu learned everything there is to know about the genre, including the different kinds of rock and roll, its origins, and its development throughout the years. Yu enjoyed being able to take a class based on his personal preferences and was truly fascinated with what he learned.
Another one of Yu’s favorite things about being a Husker is the school spirit, especially at the Husker football games. He attended the opening ceremony with friends and was impressed with how excited everyone was to cheer on their student athletes.
“Everyone was gleeful, yelling ‘Go Big Red!’ and watching those young athletes practicing. I’ve always had a great passion in learning things about football and wanted to watch a real game, but I only got the chance watching Super Bowl on the TV,” said Yu.
Upon earning his degree this spring, Yu will embark on a new adventure to the Netherlands, where he will be completing his master’s program in food science at the world-renowned Wageningen University. Even as he travels his next thousands of miles to Europe, Yu knows he won’t be forgetting his time at Nebraska any time soon.
“Graduating from Nebraska is another turning point in my life, but also a brand-new start of my upcoming adventure. I will cherish the experience at UNL,” Yu said.Meet more international Huskers
