Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
The Benton Scholars Program has been integral to my Colgate experience. I was selected during my first year and ever since we have had innovative classes and have gone on international trips together. It really focuses on building a sense of global awareness and leadership that I think is pretty unique to Colgate. It’s also given me access to some great resources and professors who are some of the best at the university. It has shaped my experience in a very positive and tangible way.
