One of the biggest turning points of my life started with preferring the Koç University. Besides the education I got here, my friends are the reason to always remember my university years with regard. Values added by every single one of my fellow graduates to my life is priceless, thanks to their regard of development of others besides theirs. Spending first three years of your university life at the Rumelifeneri Campus, besides giving you a rich and colourful university life compared to other schools of medicine, helps you to become a multi-dimensional individual. A medicine student at the Koç University School of Medicine can also be an amateur radio producer, a mentor to newcomers, and a lab researcher. I recommend everyone who succeeded to get to the Koç University to discover new horizons.
For an individual, university years correspond to a time in which he/she is transformed irreversibly into his/her self. I am grateful to have spent those years here. Koç University and the School of Medicine made me a much better person than I imagined, both socially, scientifically, and humanely.
