What drew you to the Robertson Program? 

As a first-generation student, I was drawn to the Robertson program because I wanted to make the most out of my time in college. The program would not only allow me to take advantage of resources at two universities, it would also guide me through leadership development, summer opportunities, and other aspects of my career development. The Robertson program allows me to pursue my goals without boundaries, something I couldn’t see myself doing elsewhere.
