Ted O'Neill

Now is the time to be open to the unexpected. Your next few years as a university student in the Faculty of International Social Sciences is a good time to say "Yes" to new opportunities. You will be part of writing an original story and building something new. Now is the time for creative students to become leaders. I hope as a student here you will make new discoveries about the world and find your place in it.
