What drew you to the Robertson Scholars? 

The first aspect of the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program that really caught my eye was that the program has a unique focus on reflection about the world around us, the actions we take, our leadership styles, and especially our own behaviors and how we’re impacting others. Pairing this with the phenomenal cohort of scholars, I truly feel that I will grow as a student, leader, and person. The second aspect is the focus of the program on creating leaders with an incredible breadth and depth of knowledge. The Robertson exposes every scholar to not only two world-renown schools, but also encourages each student to have a variety of experiences. The breadth of the program is complimented well by the depth of knowledge offered at the institutions, inspiring growth in more than one dimension.
