Personal Quote

“I love the academic community here: for example, a lively lunch table of faculty, staff, and students, with respectful discussions of any discipline and issue. It’s exciting to find that a student athlete here may also be a fine musician or top pre-law student. It is really gratifying to hear the news of alumni as they report on their careers in politics and law.”
