Welcoming College Town


Professors and staff go out of their way to help students. Almost every professor and staff member I interacted with became a mentor to me. For one class project, I had a conversation with my professor about a book I had read that related to my interest in socioeconomics. He ended up connecting me with the author of the book so I could interview her for the assignment. Another professor spent time helping me decide which campus organizations I should invest my time in to meet my professional goals. When applying for internships, the Career Center staff regularly reviewed, and provided feedback on, applications before I submitted them; this helped ensure I had the best chance of getting the opportunities I wanted.
