Ameliia and Nelly Tyncherova

Majors: Psychology / International Studies

Hometown: Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan

Hobbies: Drawing, painting, swimming, playing guitar / Playing piano, singing

Why Arcadia: When we were looking for universities to apply to, we found a website that had the best universities in the U.S.A., and that’s how we found Arcadia. We just fell in love with the university, and we love the campus – it’s gorgeous. Also, the study abroad program is unique. I think it’s really great that you can study not only in one country but in others.

What we’re most looking forward to: We’re most looking forward to meeting other students and gaining new experiences because our culture is kind of different from Americans’ and we want to see how people live there and get to know them and become involved in this community.

Fun fact: We are professional dancers!
