“My time within the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts has been exactly what I wanted out of a college experience, an amazing, interesting, wonderful adventure. My coursework has been exceedingly relevant and stimulating with classes like Game Theory and Environmental Economics. I've gotten a chance to receive teaching from prominent scholars at the forefront of their filed and experience a multi-disciplinary type of learning I wouldn't have found anywhere else. I've studied abroad, achieved fluency in French and become involved in several different student led organizations. The Ivan Allen College has also provided me with a home away from home. I've found peers and mentors that have helped shape my non-academic experience and have kept me fulfilled personally and professionally as well.”
