How I got here: “I actually wasn’t that familiar with the reputation of the college, other than word of mouth. But it turned out to be a great choice for me. Being right in the city is beneficial. There is excellent public transportation, it’s just a few minutes walk to the waterfront, and all those food carts were a highlight of my student experience. It was also a very good place for a returning, ‘older’ student. There’s a diversity of student backgrounds and experience that makes it easy to feel comfortable.”
