和博士一起工作. Wilson is one of the most memorable things about my time at 威尼斯人平台. Whether it was in class, on my research project, or as an advisor, Dr. Wilson was always willing to give meaningful feedback and have open conversations about what I was experiencing in college. This includes the times where I was doing really well in the different aspects of my life, but also the times when I was struggling personally. Relationships with faculty advisors is one of the greatest things about 资本.”
