Student experiences

"Academically, my course was tremendously stimulating and engaging. I was fascinated by my class's material every day. I met so many people with diverse interests and backgrounds, all of whom are deeply passionate about their studies."
"Having two professors split up the course really helped as each provided their own insight from their own experiences and had knowledge of the material that far exceeded the curriculum set forth by the text."
