When I enrolled in KDU back in 2001, admittedly it was a decision based on the location of the College. At that time, the college was a stone’s throw away from where I lived and it was therefore an easy choice to pick the closest college to me. However, upon starting the classes in the college, I knew I had picked the right place.
