                 Where The Mind is Without Fear
                 WHERE the mind is without fear and the head is held high
                                  Where knowledge is free
                   Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
                                  By narrow domestic walls
                       Where words come out from the depth of truth
                 Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
                    Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
                           Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
                           Where the mind is led forward by thee
                           Into ever-widening thought and action
                Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

Ability to change major fields of study: "Changing Majors" after enrollment is a common practice among
Undergraduate students. Changing a Major may mean more time is needed to complete the requirements of the new
field before being eligible to Graduate (get degree), but it does give students the opportunity to move into the
program best suited to their needs and abilities. While there are many Universities that will be able to give student a
degree, it is well worth student’s time and effort to find ones that truly match student’s ability, personality, budget,
and goals.

Submitting a Winning Application: A winning application is one that clearly and neatly provides ALL of the
documents requested by the deadline date and gives the admissions office an accurate picture of who you are as a
student. The university will file all of the correspondence about you by LAST NAME (or FAMILY NAME) and
then by FIRST NAME (or GIVEN NAME). It is critical that all correspondence (application, test scores, letters of
recommendation) be submitted with your LAST NAME capitalized or underlined and with the spelling and order of
your names the same in every document. Many applications have been considered incomplete and not processed
because some pieces of correspondence were filed under one name and some under another, for example
Mohammed Abdul Razak for one document and Abdul Razak for another.
