“I loved so many things about my time at Purdue, but if I had to narrow it to one thing that I appreciate most, it was the people I met. It was at Purdue where I met so many of my best friends, but also so many great faculty members who offered mentorship, served as models for the type of professor I strive to become, and provided opportunities that set me on a path towards a successful career.”
