As a prospective student visiting the University of Arkansas in the spring of 2012, Ryan DuChanois wasn't thinking that his campus tour would lead him to Ethiopia, and, eventually, to graduate studies at the University of Cambridge on a prestigious Gates Cambridge Scholarship. He was thinking how comfortable the campus felt. After all, he'd been visiting the University of Arkansas since eighth grade, when he began taking classes on environmental and spatial technologies in the JB Hunt building. "By then," Ryan says, referring to his tour, "the U of A just felt like home. I remember telling my parents that. The global perspective? That would come later."
