Afghan Students In America

The college Ruhulla attended in America

Afghanistan’s universities were only reestablished in 2001 after the fall of the Taliban.  The ministry of higher education is still plagued by a lack of infrastructure, funding, and teachers. As a result, many Afghans students choose to pursue degrees abroad instead. Ruhullah Klapawak studied at Swarthmore College from 2006-2010, and returned to Afghanistan upon graduation. Collin Smith recently called Ruhullah to hear about his experiences and reflections on coming to America for studies.
