What drew you to the Robertson Program?

The incredible thinkers, creatives, academics, and inventors that make up each Robertson class are what drew me to the program. Freshman year, I was craving a community full of people who were equally as excited about learning and leading, as I was. After meeting a few scholars, I could tell that this program was exactly where I could find what I was looking for and fulfill my desire to be surrounded by like minded people.

How has your experience with the Robertson shaped your goals and career path?

My experience with the Robertson has shown me that anything is possible and that I can make my dreams a reality. This program has so much to offer and has really opened my eyes to what is available to me by putting me by giving me new experiences that I would have never otherwise had. By having all the new experiences provided to me through the Robertson Program, I have been able to better define my career path and really find what fits me best.

What has been your favorite Robertson moment so far?

My favorite Robertson moment was the Sophomore Retreat that my class took last year. It was so nice to spend time bonding with my fellow scholars outside of an academic or professional setting. Having removed focus from more serious things like school and work, this moment really allowed us to see one another’s true personalities more clearly and appreciate everyone just for who they are, rather than for what they have done.
