Why he chose U of L: It was my top choice because of all the opportunities here. It has well-renowned programs – GEMS especially, an everything else was a bonus. I think U of L’s programs are comparable to any other in the Northeast and Northwest.

Advice for future students: Step outside of your boundaries. Take chances and get involved in things you normally wouldn’t, and take classes that challenge you.
