What drew you to the Robertson Program? 

I was drawn to the Robertson Scholars Program due to it’s culture of community, leadership, and contribution. In high school, when I was first introduced to the program, I knew these would prove essential to my college experience. Additionally, the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program has such a dedication to supporting young leaders through every aspect of their growth—academic, leadership, and personal. The numerous opportunities (internships, networking, summers, campus switch, etc.) that the program offers underscores this. I found Robertson’s to be especially remarkable for these reasons.
