Aleksandros Spaho ’24 is excited to begin his studies at the University of New Haven. An international affairs major, he is especially looking forward to beginning his classes and to meeting his classmates and professors.
“I always have had an interest in U.S. politics and world politics,” said Spaho, of Watertown, Conn. “It was something I followed closely because it is important to our future to understand how world governments operate.”
Spaho says it was when he attended an open house at the University as a high school student that he knew he had found his home for the next four years.
“The community and the environment at the University are special,” he said. “I felt welcomed. The environment was exciting. I felt this connection that made me say: ‘This is the one.’”
