“I had amazing faculty members at 资本. They helped me find observation experiences, 志愿服务机会, and jobs that would look best on graduate school applications. Most faculty have an open door policy allowing me to drop in whenever I was near their office to chat about soccer or other courses I was taking. Everyone was so friendly, allowing me to feel like a part of the CapFam.”
