Experience Academic Excellence


When I’m in class here, I think to myself: ‘I actually want to learn about this.’ I’ve had classes that were captivating, and classes that impacted my viewpoints on several subjects – my viewpoints on life. I’ve had classes with professors that are just great, and I had great conversations with them as a result. It’s not just about my future career here; I’m learning how to be a better individual overall.
