“Best memory: when my team won first-place with the Case Competition for the first time, because we had lost the year before that. And because I had been so shy before, it was just amazing for me to see how I could get up and give a presentation to a board of judges and do it in front of the whole student body present.”

Kristen Brown


“I came from a public school where not everyone was as motivated or as ambitious. Sometimes you may feel that there aren’t a lot of people out there like you, who are disciplined and focused. You meet other people who are like you and they help to shape what you ultimately do and support you in your future endeavors.”

Joseph V. Hill


“It helped intensify my leadership ability in the work I do now. It was a collaboration of what the program had to offer in regards of the curriculum, but also the mentors and the colleagues I was able to establish relationships with during the course of three and a half years.”
