Working hard through high school, taking advanced classes, balancing extracurricular activities, constantly worrying about test scores – behind it all, I was even more concerned about how I could afford college at all. My only hope for attending the University of Rochester was if I received some financial help. My exceptional U of R experience has been made possible – in part – by the generosity of alumni, parents and friends.
So many paths present themselves for my future now – the 3/2 MBA Program at the Simon School of Business available to undergraduate seniors, going to a faraway country through the extensive network of Study Abroad programs, or choosing from hundreds of different internships and research opportunities across all fields. I aspire to live in Washington, D.C. after my education to use my knowledge of statistics and political science.
I will always remember that my journey to the University of Rochester was made possible by the College Annual Fund and the alumni who support it.
