What students say about Universalis

For me, Universalis is what makes UCM such an extraordinary place. It is the glue that holds the community together and maybe even more importantly it exemplifies the core belief that student life and growth is about more than just academics.

Jonathan Schoen

Universalis is what differentiates UCM from other higher education institutes. It is a platform that enables people with shared interests to come together and form bonds that enhance both their social and academic experience.

Elisabeth Hiller

Universalis is a space in which you can grow by being active. For me, events like the open mic and  game nights gave me a great way to gain an active social life. I had the opportunity to push myself and gain experiences by being a member of the Social Board.
