Isaac Bisilki
PhD in Communication and Media Studies

Home country: Ghana
Involvement on campus: I serve on an SOJC search committee as the graduate students' representative.
Why did you choose UO: The interdisciplinary nature of the PhD program was something I felt would broaden my understanding of communication concepts in general while offering me the opportunity to narrow down on my research interest.
Favorite part about UO: There are sporting facilities (modern soccer field and gym) to always keep yourself fit and connected to other students, especially those that play at the field. Also, I discovered disc golf, a new game, at Eugene which I play on most Saturdays. It is so much fun!
Fun fact about my home country: Ghana is the second largest producer of cocoa with plenty of organic chocolate to eat when you visit.

Home country: Beijing, China
Involvement on campus: I'm a member and previous president of the International Business Association, I work in the Office of Admissions to recruit incoming students, and I also volunteered during TrackTown20 and Oregon22.
Why did you choose UO: The Lundquist College of Business have always been one of my top choices, so making the decision of attending UO was very easy.
Favorite part about UO: My favorite memory is back in freshman year me and my friends would play badminton every Friday for hours and having study groups almost every day. Going to a football game is another very memorable time for me as well!
Fun fact about my home country: Fortune cookie is in fact not a Chinese traditional culture.
