 Oscar  Borda

Oscar Borda

International Student Ambassador - Brazil

Email: omgomezborda@eiu.edu
My name is Oscar Borda; I am an international student-athlete from Brazil. I came to Eastern Illinois University to get my undergraduate degree in Business, focusing on Finance, and to play Golf for the Panthers. I picked EIU for its location, quality of its business faculty, and to play golf at a competitive level.  The decision of attending this university was one of the best decisions I ever made. The location of the classes is compact and easy to navigate and the community of Charleston provides great activities off-campus.  I have made great friendships and the school provides those moments which will become my greatest memories. From the beginning of my college career, both the academic and athletic departments have helped me acclimate to the University lifestyle.
