WHY DID YOU CHOOSE MN?
I was looking for a school that wasn’t afraid to push boundaries, was doing a variety of impactful research, and had a supportive atmosphere with great camaraderie among the students.
STUDENT MENTOR AND THE BEST ADVICE THEY GAVE:
Jennifer Cook: The classes will be a lot (of work), but just keep pushing through, because everyone else is in the same position.
FAVORITE ITASCA MEMORY:
1) Hanging with my cohort in general 2) the meteor shower 3) paddle board raft creation
