Assets like the Career Center and The Shriver Center, coupled with accessible faculty, create a space for students to engage with their campus and push their own boundaries. In this environment, I met hard-working and highly motivated people who pushed me to work and think more passionately than I ever have before. I will strive to carry this passion into everything I do.
