From the Lion's Mouth
“From the second I stepped onto campus, I’ve seen how diverse our community is here and how “global” my experience actually is. My best friend on campus is an international student, and his unique experiences continue to give me a distinct perspective on the way I handle school, work and life. The World Leaders Forum extended that by allowing me to question leaders face-to-face and learn about the rest of the world from the leaders who are shaping it. My professors come from all over the world and their expertise reflects their commitment to understanding the way the world works. They have inspired me to focus on international and comparative politics.”
