Why Ashesi?

  • “The diversity and the many opportunities Ashesi offer which gives you a lot of exposure”, Maame Efua Haizel (class of 2019).
  • “I chose it because I didn’t really know what major to pursue. But being in the environment alone adds much value that has nothing to do with your course. As a matter of fact if you’re wise you walk away with something more than a degree”, Carol Armah (class of 2019).
  • “New experience, environment and exposure to new friends”, Warren Amoh-Agyare (Class of 2020).
  • “I always wanted to study outside Kenya and was applying to schools in USA. But then, Ashesi came to the organization I was working with and they pitched their idea. I liked the whole liberal arts thing. When I got admitted with a scholarship, I forgot about everything else about the USA”, Faith Mueni (class of 2019).

Favorite Place on Campus

  • I like hanging around at the health center area because it is peaceful”, Belinda Wilson Nelson (class of 2019).
